China - May 2012

TMC attended the grounding of this container vessel in the Fuzhou region of China in March 2012 on behalf of Owners/P&I for salvage and wreck removal assistance. The vessel had quickly broken her back on a mud bank as the tide receded, making salvage not possible. A wreck removal contract was agreed with a local contractor for removal of the wreck and all the containers. The aft section was successfully re-floated within two months and the forward section was later removed by the contractor.
