Marine Salvage Expert
and Specialist Contracting
You can hire us to perform services under “a contract for services” (commonly called an Independent Contractors Agreement).
We call ourselves “specialists” because we are able to do work that other general contractors cannot. We can do jobs in hard to reach places, environmentally sensitive areas, out at sea, in the bush, rural properties, council land, rugged countryside, you name it, Pacific7 can do it. We have a diverse range of equipment at our disposal to do these jobs, as well as highly trained crew and years of experience across many trades.
What distinguishes us from General Contractors? Being able to undertake works in difficult to reach places. These places are often in environmentally sensitive areas such as estuaries where it is imperative that there is minimal environmental impact. In many cases this is limited to footprints only.
Approved contractors for:
- Regional Councils
- District Councils
- Energy service providers

In particularly confined spaces, limbs can be lowered down in small sections using specialised roping techniques, cranes, cherry pickers and even helicopters for more complicated sites.

Due to our extensive range of vehicles we can be amphibious. We can fly, float and scale but our main areas of specialty are:
- Rivers & Streams – A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. A Stream is a small river, creek, or rivulet.
- Lakes – a large area of water surrounded by land
- Estuaries -A partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea. Estuaries form a transition zone between river environments and maritime environments.
- Dams – A dam is a wall that is built across a river in order to stop the water flowing and to make a lake. Dams are often used for animal or fish farming or to generate electricity or a water supply
