The badly damaged by fire chemical tanker is docked in the Arab Ship Building & Repair Yard for evaluation of salvage operation

The chemical tanker, Stolt Valor, which caught fire on March 15, 2012, north of Bahrain, was  docked at ASRY after Bahrain agreed to accept the ship into its territorial waters.

Maritime experts from General Organisation of Sea Ports (GOP) are liaising with the Arab Ship Building and Repair Yard Company (Asry), which is overseeing the operation to determine the salvage process of the damaged Liberian ship Stolt Valor with its owners.

Technical findings following the evaluation of the tanker's condition are expected by the end of the week, reports 'Gulf Daily News'.

"The evaluation of the vessel is continuing as planned and will be done to the highest international standards. We are working closely with the various local and international bodies including environmental and safety experts, to ensure that any risks are immediately addressed and Bahrain's territorial waters and coastal environs are free from any threat from the Stolt Valor," GOP director-general Hassan Ali Almajed said.
