BISSO MARINE

Bisso Marine are a very well known salvage company operating in the Gulf of Mexico in the main. They have a fleet of barges of various sizes, mostly fitted with big cranes and sheerlegs which can lift smaller vessels off the seabed. However They have not up to now owned any ships which would fit into the Ships and Oil random classifications. Well, actually it was in 2008 that they acquired the ship but we have ignored it up to now.

Bisso have been in the salvage business since the mid 19th century and in the offshore business since the 1940s, but their interest has been in cranes and barges more than ships, hence their limited entry on this site.

The company has owned at least one US type anchor handler which now seems to have gone on to other owners. Reviewed again as part of the revised website Bisso appear to have added to their offshore fleet. Unfortunately the added vessels are no more than a name because there is not much more available.
