Oli removal being prepared

Thu Oct 17 14:03:28 CEST 2019 Timsen

Oil removal operations from the "Rhodanus' were prepared from the shore with the arrival of the company Euro assainissement of the group SEA from Ajaccio, which was dispatched by the shipowner and its insurers. As a precautionary measure, the anti-pollution vessel 'Jason' laid out an oil barrier around the ship to secure future pumping operations. In addition, monitoring of the site was continued with daily investigations of the Navy's mine clearance divers, overflights by a Falcon 50 aircraft of the French Navy, and permanent inspection of the facilities of the 'Rhodanus'. No pollution was found. French report with photo: http://www.premar-mediterranee.gouv.fr/communiques-presse/echouement-d-un-cargo-a-proximite-des-bouches-de-bonifacio-communique-de-presse-n-6

Grounded ship secured

Wed Oct 16 13:58:42 CEST 2019 Timsen

Following the grounding of the 'Rhodanus', operations to refloat the ship continued in close connection with the shipowner and its insurers who made contact with several companies to propose solutions to the maritime prefecture of the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, the security of the site has been strengthened. In addition to the additional anchorage installed in the late afternoon of Oct 13, a team of experts from the French Navy embarked on the 'Rhodanus' while the naval mine clearance divers carried out further inspections of the hull and facilities on board. One to two breaches on the forward peak were detected, one of which was plugged. The teams on site were able to pump out the water which poured in. The hydrographic survey ship 'Lapérouse' has identified the numerous obstacles to navigation in the area and has set up a temporary beaconing system in order to establish an access channel in favour of the various means likely to intervene later on. Draining the 38 tons of fuel has a priority.

Grounded ship will have to be lightered

Mon Oct 14 16:32:23 CEST 2019 Timsen

After the grounding of the 'Rhodanus' an evaluation and intervention team was dispatched to the area as well as demining divers of the French Navy by the Maritime Prefecture of the Mediterranean. Their conclusions were presented to the Maritime Prefect of the Mediterranean in the night of Oct 13. The dives showed that the 'Rhodanus' was largely resting on the bottom with its foreship so she will have to be lightered before the salvage can commence. Given the nature of the cargo - steel coils of several tons each -, specific means must be transported to the accident site first. Meanwhile, the priority was to preserve the marine environment. On scene were the 'Laperouse', a hydrographic survey ship, the tug 'Abeille Bee', the anti pollution vessel 'Jason', the patrol boat 'Daffodil' of the Maritime Gendarmerie, the Italian patrol boatl 'CP306', the tug 'Persevero d'Ajaccio', the lifeboat 'Capitaine de Vaisseau L’Herminier - SNS 063' of the SNSM station Bonifacio, a Puma helicopter of the French Air Force and a Cayman helicopter of the French Navy which transferred the evaluation teams to the site, and a Falcon 50 surveillance aircraft of the French Navy. Already in 2010 the ship was threatened to run aground off Porto-Vechio while it was moving towards the islets of Budelli and Razzoli. The Sardinian coastguard had tried to alert the captain but he had fallen asleep. The worst was avoided by a change of course 500 meters before the impact.
