While transiting the Singapore Straits, the 306m containership AL RAWDAH grounded and sustained a breach in the #3 cargo hold. As a result, the hold flooded and some of the containers carrying lube oil, were damaged and leaked into the hold. Resolve was retained by the owners to decontaminate and discharge all remaining containers from the damaged hold and remove the oil so the vessel could proceed to dry-dock to effect repairs. Resolve carried out the operation ahead of schedule.
