Salvage work continues at the site of car carrier Hoegh Osaka, the U.K. Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said, reporting that salvors have reduced the vessel’s list from its original 52 degrees to 39 degrees on the evening of Monday, January 19.
 
Operations to remove clean water from the vessel’s lower car decks continue as the weather on scene remains favorable, MCA said.
 
The vessel will stay at Aplha Anchorage until the list has been reduced to around 15 degrees, some ship’s systems have been reinstated and weather conditions are suitable. MCA reports that the long range weather forecast indicates that it is unlikely that the Hoegh Osaka will be moved from Alpha Anchorage to a berth at Southampton Port on Wednesday, January 21.
