Pasha Bulker Expert to Help Move Grounded Ship

Wednesday, December 05, 2007
The salvage master who coordinated the operation to move the Pasha Bulker off Newcastle has been brought in to head the effort to move a 75,000 tonne bulk carrier which has run aground in central Queensland. Experts and equipment are being brought in to help refloat the Endeavour River, which ran aground in Gladstone Harbor.

A spokesman from the salvage company, Svitzer, says it is likely that efforts to refloat the ship will not be made until later in the week when the tides are more favorable.

Svitzer is also bringing in one of its naval architects from Holland who will look at the structure of the ship. Additional equipment, including cables and shackles, is scheduled to arrive. Investigations are underway for the reason the bulk carrier ran aground but at the moment the focus is on refloating the the ship, fully loaded with bauxite. Source: ABC News
