Guardian Salvage Operation Photo Gallery

The U.S. Navy contracted crane vessel M/V Jascon 25 removes the bow of the mine countermeasure ship ex-Guardian (MCM 5) and places it onto the barge Seabridge. Guardian ran aground on the Tubbataha Reef Jan. 17. The U.S. Navy and contracted salvage teams continue damage assessments and the removal of equipment and parts to prepare the grounded ship to be safely dismantled and removed from Tubbataha Reef. The U.S. Navy continues to work in close cooperation with the Philippine authorities to safely dismantle Guardian from the reef while minimizing environmental effects.
