The Coast Guard and local agencies continue to oversee operations to refloat the PSV 'Int'l Carrier'.

The four person crew of the grounded motor vessel Int’l Carrier made an attempt to refloat the ship Tuesday evening after main propulsion was regained, but they were not successful. The ship ran aground Monday, about 9 miles northeast of Port Aransas.

The ship’s owner, International Offshore Services, has signed a contract with Mammoet Salvage to develop a salvage plan and recover the vessel. After the salvage plan is finished, they will submit the plan to Coast Guard Sector Corpus Christi for review and approval.

“We continue to coordinate with the vessel owner to balance crew safety, marine environmental protection concerns and salvage operations for an expedited resolution to the grounding”, said Cmdr. Daniel Deptula, the chief of operations at the sector.

The cause of the incident is under investigation. The Coast Guard, state and local agencies will continue to monitor the situation until it is resolved.
