Mobilization has been ongoing to salvage the RORO Ferry AMADEO 1, which was transiting from Puerto Natales to Puerto Montt, Chile, when the vessel grounded at the Kirke Canal. On Saturday, April 25th, the tug ‘Quetro’ arrived on site in Chile with the barge RMG 280 in tow. Welding continues on parbuckling padeyes and holdback buttons for the pullers. Pullers, HPU’s and control stands are also being set up. Three more anchor points have been completed, and further drilling continues. Lastly, the RESOLVE Discovery was fueled and all preparation checks completed. Her engines started and tested exceptionally well.
