Mammoet released book on Kursk salvage

The Dutch Mammoet company, which took part in the Kursk sub's salvage from the bottom of the Barents Sea in October 2001, presents in Rotterdam a book of documents and memoirs about the salvage of the Russian submarine on the second anniversary of the end of this operation.

Workers of Russia's Rubin design bureau who helped Mammoet lift the sunken submarine, have been invited to the presentation ceremony.

Mammoet President Frans van Seumeren admitted in an interview with RIA Novosti that the Kursk salvage operation was the strongest emotional experience in their life. "Though our company had been lifting and moving most difficult and heavy loads in the world, Kursk was the first vessel we lifted from the seabed together with the bodies and souls of 118 perished submariners," he stressed.

The Kursk nuclear submarine sank on August 12, 2000 at the depth of over 100 meters during naval exercises in the Barents Sea. All the 118 crewmen on board the missile carrier died.
