TITAN and CSA to Partner on Environmentally Sensitive Salvage and Wreck Removal Jobs

(Pompano Beach, Fla.; June 8, 2009) — TITAN Salvage and CSA International, Inc., announced today that they have signed a memorandum of understanding that allows TITAN to gain the experience and expertise of CSA’s coral reef and seagrass experts when TITAN undertakes environmentally sensitive jobs anywhere in the world.

CSA, a leader in marine environmental sciences and related services, will help ensure that potential impacts of wreck removal and salvage operations to reef or seagrass habitats are mitigated and minimized to the fullest extent possible. CSA and TITAN will combine scientific knowledge, technical expertise and ingenuity to provide clients with a comprehensive understanding of an incident. This will effectively position them to begin managing the post operation cost impacts as the project commences. This knowledge will afford clients the opportunity to potentially reduce the overall cost of incidents significantly.

“We are very pleased to be working with CSA,” said Dan Schwall, TITAN managing director. “With so many salvage and wreck removal jobs having an environmental component to them, we believe CSA’s expertise and experience at our job sites will bring a lot of added value to our customers who want to be assured — as do we — that every effort is made to prevent or minimize impact to the environment.”
