OBERON

Taiwan - January 2012

TMC attended the grounding of this vessel on behalf of Owners/P&I in Taiwan from initial salvage all the way through to completion of wreck removal by the approved contractors Resolve. This was a sensitive and complex matter which required 1,000cu.mtrs of highly flammable LPG to be safely transferred to another vessel and the cargo tanks made safe, before removal of the wreck itself could begin. The job was completed to the satisfaction of the local authorities and all parties concerned.
