In October 2020, Resolve Marine responded to a grounded container vessel, the Lady Haloum, (dwt 12,200 capacity 1,139 TEU, built 1993) that was pushed against the Port of Tripoli–Libya’s breakwater–by a strong winter storm. After her anchors dragged, the crew could not respond in time to avoid a grounding. The grounding caused the engine room to flood and allowed water to enter the cargo hold. Resolve Marine resources were mobilized from Malta and a salvage team and portable salvage equipment were mobilized from their salvage bases in the Netherlands and Gibraltar. After the salvage team stabilized the vessel and took all measures to avoid any danger of pollution, they prepared the vessel for air pressurization and potential lightering, she was safely refloated by the salvage teams and tugs SEA JULIETT and ASSO 24. The vessel was brought into the Port of Tripoli where the cargo was discharged and safely redelivered. In port, Resolve Marine completed additional stabilization repairs enabling sea passage to Turkey where the vessel was redelivered to her owners.
