Anti pollution work continued
The salvage operations at the "SSL Kolkata" were continuing in rough weather conditions with 2- 4 metre swells. There was no apparent damage caused to the environment as of now except a minor oil leakage from vessel which was being attended to with means of oil spill combating gear. SMIT International salvage has been on site since the beginning of the incident. Vessels, tugs, crane barges and oil spill response equipment have been mobilized and deployed for salvage and oil recovery operations. The International Tanker Owners Pollution Federation (ITOPF), a leading marine ship pollution response advisor have also been appointed as specialists for advising and coordinating with local authorities. A team from Oil Spill Response Ltd. (OSRL), the world’s largest industry funded agency for oil spill recovery was on site to initiate preventive measures in the event of oil pollution. Shallow draft barges have been specially sourced from Singapore and UAE and were expected to arrive on site shortly. The two vessels will facilitate bunker oil and cargo removal operations. A team from Le Floch Depollution, a specialised clean up contactor with expertise in mangroves is also on site near the Sunderbans. A helicopter dispersant system is also being tested by the Indian Air Force team. Despite the adverse weather conditions, a dive team from SMIT is scheduled to attempt an underwater inspection of the Vessel to assess the hull condition.

Search for lost containers delayed
An Australian Maritime Safety Authority sub-sea survey to locate the missing containers was due to wrap up earlier this month, but poor weather and sea conditions have pushed the search schedule back. The survey was now due to finish this week, if conditions remained safe enough to send the hydrographic survey vessel out to sea. Clean up of debris continued, with 1039 cubic metres salvaged across Port Stephens and the Mid North Coast. more than 40 days since the "YM Efficiency" lost 81 containers overboard in the waters off the Hunter’s coastline. NSW Maritime staff overseeing clean-up operations met with the Professional Fisherman Association and a number of select trawler operators last week. The plan was to overlay container location mapping with the trawler operator’s data to look for priority search areas. Representatives from the NSW Department of Primary Industries also attended the meeting to advise on expectations and priorities in areas within NSW state waters and within the Port Stephens Great Lakes Marine Park and Solitary Islands Maritime Parks.

Fire in superstructure
A fire broke out in the upper decks of the superstructure of cthe "Salem Mesra" which was anchored off Marina Barrage, Singapore, on July 16, 2018, at 3.10 p.m. Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) firefighters and four fire boats were deployed. SCDF Marine firefighters adopted a two-pronged approach namely, boundary cooling on the exterior of the affected ship using 2 water monitors from the Rapid Response Fire Vessel and deploying 2 water jets to penetrate into the cabins to mitigate the deep-seated fire. It took them five hours to get the fire under control. At 10 p.m. the firefighters were cooling down the superstructure to prevent possible reignition of the fire.
