OPA 90 services provider Donjon-SMIT relocating to Houston

(ALEXANDRIA, Va.) — Donjon-SMIT, a provider of Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90) salvage and marine firefighting (SMFF) services established by Donjon Marine Co. Inc. and SMIT Salvage Americas Inc., will be moving its company headquarters from Alexandria, Va., to Houston, Texas, effective April 1.

The joint venture has been headquartered in Alexandria to facilitate communication with the U.S. Coast Guard as well as compliance with the new OPA 90 salvage and marine firefighting (SMFF) regulations for tank and non-tank vessels. As the SMFF regulations are well established, the focus of the joint venture is now on compliance and response.

The headquarters office of Donjon-SMIT will be located in the facilities of SMIT Salvage Americas in Houston. The relocation will occur without any interruption to the service provided to its clients.

Donjon-SMIT’s 24-hour telephone contact number is 1-703-299-0081 and will not be changed.
