St. Lucia, West Indies

RESOLVE refloated the sunken container vessel ANGELN and then scuttled the wreck at a deep water reefing site. The 435 ft, loaded container ship sank at a depth of 110 ft in the shipping lane three miles outside Vieux Fort, St. Lucia.  RESOLVE mobilized a team of salvors and equipment including the salvage tugs RESOLVE SUHAILI and RESOLVE PIONEER and floating shear leg RMG-400. The operation included clearing the debris field; lifting and relocating the deck house; refloating and disposal of the vessel. Throughout the operation, RESOLVE monitored the wreck site for oil leakage and also removed and recovered containers containing oil.
