Fuel Removal from Sunken Vessel

  14/10/2013
The South Carolina Coast Guard, USA, was making preparations on Saturday 12 October 2013 to contract the removal of any fuel or hazardous substances that may be aboard a 45-foot boat which sunk on Thursday morning in Mount Pleasant. The vessel, Miss Caroline, was found mostly submerged at the pier and was actively sheening diesel fuel. The owner made attempts to salvage the vessel on Friday, but without success.

 

 

Personnel at Coast Guard Sector Charleston were notified of the sunken vessel and sent pollution responders to investigate further.

 

Due to the owner’s inability to salvage the vessel, the Coast Guard intended to contract a local salvage company to raise the vessel and remove any fuel that may still remain onboard.
