Of particular note is the work that Briggs Marine carried out on the Royal Oak, a sunken WWII Battleship and war grave. We were awarded the contract for conducting oil removal operations under MoD Salvage & Marine Operations direction. HMS Royal Oak was a Sovereign class battle ship built originally as a coal burner for WW1. The vessel was later converted to fuel oil, consequently, oil tanks are sporadic and in unconventional positions within the hull.
