Situation on board the MSC Flaminia is unchanged. The team of firefighting experts has been unable to board the vessel since July 30th, 2012 due to bad weather conditions. A change of weather situation is predicted for Sunday this week.
A detailed statement regarding the condition of cargo hold 7 is only to be made when the salvage team can board the MSC Flaminia again. Temperatures are monitored continously in this area in order to carry on with boundary cooling. MSC Flaminia is still listing by approximately 10 degrees. Her waiting position is approximately 360 nautical miles off the British coast.
A decision to enter a sheltered coastal area has not yet been made but is expected in the coming days.Source: Reederei NSB
