T&T Subsea: A Veteran’s Day Mission
On Veteran’s Day this year, T&T Subsea divers worked to help save the Battleship Texas, the over 100-year-old U.S. naval vessel and historic landmark ship of Texas launched in 1912 that fought in both World Wars.
T&T Subsea, the Teichman Group’s dedicated commercial diving company, was founded by U.S. Army veteran and salvage industry legend Rudy Teichman. Today, the T&T Subsea team consists of U.S. military veterans and divers from the U.S. Marines, U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard with over 60-years combined military service.
T&T Subsea was hand-selected by the State of Texas to salvage, repair and maintain the historic battleship and, on Veteran’s Day, T&T Subsea divers quickly and effectively patched the ship’s fragile hull to allow dewatering operations and then completed permanent repairs.
Based on T&T Subsea’s exceptional performance, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission awarded T&T a commendation that stated the company “provided a rapid and skilled response involving specialized equipment and staff that were invaluable in preserving the historic fabric of the ship.” The Manager of the Battleship Texas added “As always, T&T provided exceptional service. The team was safe, responsive and considerate of the complexities of working on Battleship Texas.”
