Ship Protection / Anti-Piracy Services

VessEx launched its Shiprotek service in response to the growing number of pirate attacks throughout the world.  Our highly skilled and well-equipped teams accompany vessels while they transit high-risk areas to deter and repel attacks.  Key features of Shiprotek include:

  • armed riding teams
  • protection training for the ship's crew
  • response planning
  • active defense

Aircraft Recovery Services

Our highly skilled aviation team can locate and recover almost any type of aircraft for dispossessed owners or mortgagees.  If the location of an aircraft is unknown, VessEx's proven investigative techniques can find and track it anywhere in the world.  Once found, VessEx  can dispatch an experienced team of pilots and crew to recover the aircraft and return it to your control.
