Inspection After Fire On Cargo Shipwreck Being Cut Up For Removal

·1-min read

Response engineers began post-fire assessments of the wreck and wreck removal equipment in Brunswick, Georgia, on Saturday.

The VB-10000 unhooked from Section Three on Saturday and will shift away from the wreck to allow for continued assessments for any damage sustained by the vessel during a fire inside the wreck on Friday.

Firefighting teams controlled the fire early Friday evening and immediately began boundary cooling operations on the wreck. No personnel have sustained injuries.

On 8 September, 2020, the 200-metre-long car carrier MV Golden Ray capsized within Georgia’s Port of Brunswick harbour in America. The South Korean vessel has been lying on her side in shallow water in St. Simons Sound ever since. The vessel was carrying thousands of cars.
