Seaward, Inc. Promotes Michael K. Kutzleb
Seaward, Inc., has announced the promotion of Michael K. Kutzleb to manager, Self-contained Tanker Off-loading Pumping Systems (STOPS). STOPS is a specially designed submersible pump system for tanker offloading and salvage pumping.
Mr. Kutzleb is a graduate of the University of Virginia, majoring in economics and business law, with secondary studies in physical sciences and computer programming. He joined Seaward, Inc. on a full-time basis in March 1975, after serving as a technician/ operator on a consulting basis for three years. Since joining Seaward, he has completed the U.S. Navy's Ship Salvage Operations Course for Engineering Duty Officers, and is qualified in U.S.
Navy air and scuba diving equipment.
Mr. Kutzleb has participated in a variety of offshore search and recovery tasks for both the U.S.
Navy and commercial interests.
His pumping experience includes cargo reclamation from the S/T Sansinena at Long Beach, Calif., in 1976. In addition, he has developed several computer programs for Seaward's use in the search and recovery field.
Seaward, Inc., located at 6269 Leesburg Pike in Falls Church, Va., now has four STOPS systems for deployment in the event of emergency pumping requirements.
Each STOPS is an independent offloading system capable of pumping 1,600 bbl/hr. (200 tons per hour). STOPS is packaged for land, sea or air transport to the site of a disabled tanker.
On scene, STOPS can be in service within two to three hours.
Seaward's experience in tanker offloading is worldwide. STOPS has directly contributed to the salvage of the Showa Maru, a 238,000-dwt VLCC in Singapore, and the Seaspeed Dora, a large ro/ro ship in Saudi Arabia. Experience on these and other major pumping operations has shown the versatility and efficiency of STOPS in rapid response emergencies.
Seaward offers this pumping service around the clock on a worldwide basis.
STOPS, which are also manufactured by Seaward, Inc., are in service with the Canadian Coast Guard, Alyeska Pipeline Company, and other major salvage companies in Europe and Asia, including SELCO Salvage.
