MSC FLAMINIA en route to Wilhelmshaven

by Hans | August 23rd, 2012

MSC Flaminia and its accompanying tug boats Fairmount Expedition (Fairmount Marine) and Anglian Sovereign (L.P. Knight) is currently moving towards British territorial waters.

On Friday, the group is expected 40 nm south of Land’s End, the western tip of the UK. Once there, a team of experts consisting of dangerous goods specialists, chemists and salvage experts will conduct a safety inspection onboard the vessel. Together with experts from the UK, France and the Netherlands the condition of the vessel and its cargo will be reviewed to ensure a safe passage through the English Channel.

In consultation with the German Central Command for Maritime Emergencies, MSC Flaminia will be towed to deep water anchorage in the German Bight, approximately 12 nm west of Heligoland. After completion of all planned tasks there, the vessel will then be towed to the port of Wilhelmshaven.
