T&T Bisso successfully refloated a bulk carrier that ran aground near Gwadar Port in Pakistan.

Led by Salvage Master V. Seva, T&T Bisso mobilized a salvage team that included a naval architect and dive team, along with a high-horsepower tug, to refloat the grounded vessel carrying 50,000 metric tons of urea fertilizer.

The crew safely refloated the 623.3-ft bulk carrier during high tide without having to lighter bunkers or cargo. The vessel and cargo were delivered to its owners with no damage to the environment.
