Unfortunately it only came out in an Norwegian articles here but it seems another deep sea recovery organisation that was involved in the AF447 search has also offered their assistance. At this time, any offer including the offer by Swire Seabed Mr. Frode Gaupås, who is operations director at Swire Seabed , who said "We are ready to join the search if we are asked about it". The Bergen-based company Swire Seabed AS owns one of the few mini submarine that can dive to 6,000 meters and thus can be used for this type of mission.We are ready to send it down on a cargo plane to Australia. said Gaupås. (From the translated article) In this time of need, methinks its best we take up on any such offer given to us don't you think.
