Specialist Projects



The First World War German submarine currently lies in 27-34m of water in the English Channel. The need to move UB38 comes from the amount of deep drafted vessels moving over it.

The operations will be conducted from the heavy lift barge `Norma` and will initially start with a detailed diving inspection of the boat to determine its condition and position on the seabed. From this survey the lift plan will be formulated.

The lifting will consist of passing wire strops under the U-Boat and connecting them to spreader beams on the port and starboard side. Onto these beams the main lift wires will be connected from the lift barge. Once all rigging is completed UB38 will be lifted approximately 3-4m clear of the seabed, then carefully towed two miles to its new resting place. Once in position, it will be lowered back onto the seabed and the lifting wires will be disconnected.
