About Us

Ardent, a leading Emergency Management & Wreck Removal company, will no longer enter into new contracts from May 2020 on.

Since its inception 5 years ago Ardent has completed over 300 contracts worldwide for the marine and oil & gas industry with 0 LTIs. Many of them involved challenging work, whether it related to ships on fire or aground, deep sea oil recovery, UXO subsea work, decommissioning of offshore units or removal of major wrecks.

Ardent has sold certain parts of its business to other providers, notably its OPA90 SMFF services. All current preparedness and salvage contracts will be fulfilled but outside of existing relations no more new salvage cases will be handled. Ardent’s contract managers will be in continuous contact with their customers.

Ardent would like to take this opportunity to thank all its valuable customers and partners over the past 5 years for their trust in Ardent and its employees’ capabilities.
