Resolve Refloats Cruise Ship in Northwest Passage
Resolve Marine Group refloated the Clipper Adventurer cruise ship recently. The vessel had run aground on rocks in Coronation Gulf, in Canada's Northwest Passage on Friday, August 27.
The Resolve salvage team deployed four tugs at high tide, to free the stranded vessel. The Clipper had sustained several breeches to the hull when it ran aground the rocks last month, with passengers onboard. The Canadian Coast Guard evacuated the passengers without incident before the salvage operations began. The vessel is currently underway to Port Epworth, Nunavut, where it will be stabilized and temporary repairs effected.
