Loaded with steel bars, a bulk carrier, collided with an LNG carrier just outside the Port of Gibraltar in August. The Port Authority ordered the vessel to be beached to minimize the risk of it sinking. Resolve was immediately called into action to assist with teams and equipment from our Gibraltar operation. A dive survey was carried out within hours of the collision and significant damage was noted in way of holds 2 and 3. Subsequently, a Lloyds Open Form, SCOPIC invoked, was agreed to and a full salvage team was mobilized to stabilize the vessel and remove all pollutants onboard.
