Smit Salvage started the salvage operations in the middle of the day on April 15th after a complete survey of the situation.
The salvage team was composed of two tugs with crew and material, four specialized divers and one salvage master in charge of the operations.
The ship was first disconnected from the rig, and as the weather conditions became bad (25 knot south-westerly wind and 4 meter high waves), it became destabilized and then sunk before towage was possible.
For the time being, most of the Smit Salvage teams have left the zone, except for one tug that remains for the moment on the zone to monitor the current situation.
