Rotterdam, 28 July 2003

URS Salvage & Maritime contracting N.V. (subsidiary of international maritime service provider SMIT) and Multraship Salvage B.V. have successfully refloated the ‘Pelican I' on Monday the 28th of July at 3:00 AM local time. The casualty collided with the outgoing container carrier ‘Maersk Bahrain' in the river ‘Westerscheldt' on Sunday the 20th of July at 2:14 AM.

In view of stability, refloating was previously postponed and all deck cargo was removed. The floating sheerleg ‘Commorant' was utilised to install messenger wires and lifting slings. The floating sheerleg ‘Matador 3' was then connected to the stern to stabilise and hold the ‘Pelican I' in position. Currently the remainder of the cargo below decks is being removed after which the vessel will be redelivered to its owners in Flushing.

The exact location of accident is the ‘Nauw van Bath' on the Antwerp side of the river. The ‘Pelican I' reportedly experienced steering gear problems which lead to a direct collision. Immediately after the accident the ‘Pelican I' reported a black out and damage in the engine room. The ‘Maersk Bahrain' reported that she was making water in her fore peak tank but had managed to anchor off Flushing for inspection.

On Sunday the 20th of July at 2:50 AM in view of the situation the authorities closed the river to all vessels. Multraship's ‘Multrajet' crew tender shuttled 24 crewmembers safely off the casualty. The master and a pilot remained onboard. Reports claimed that the ‘Pelican I' had a heavy list and was being held against a sandbank by a dozen tugs to prevent her from sinking.

Salvage experts worked closely together with the Dutch authorities to formulate a salvage plan in order to minimise the risk of pollution and prevent further damage to the vessel. Minor oil pollution occurred just after the collision. Due to the detailed salvage plan which was communicated to the relevant authorities there were no threats to the environment although bunkers and chemical cargo were still onboard.

‘The Pelican I' sails under the flag of Malta and can carry up to 1,939 TEU (20 ft containers). She has a length of 202.5 meters, is 31 meters wide and was built in 1988. The ‘Maersk Bahrain' was built in 1975, can carry 2,328 TEU and sails under the flag of the Bahamas. Her length is 239.2 meters and has a width of 30.5 meters.
