The operation to remove the wreck of the OS 35 bulk carrier from Gibraltar waters is set to kick off with the arrival of equipment from South America.
Gibraltar’s Captain of the Port confirmed that the anchor handling tug Koole 42 and a barge are scheduled to arrive in Gibraltar this week. After that crews will gather and work can commence. The Caption of the Port has given the owners and insurers of the vessel until the end of May to complete the removal work.
OS 35 was outbound from Gibraltar Port with a load of steel bars when it collided with the unladen LNG carrier Adam LNG in the Bay of Gibraltar on August 29 2022.
