The heavy workload of the ship and the deep sediment is not allowed to refloat without any damage. Experts decided not to risk it and to suspend operation. This was reported Zhaksylyk Kopbayev, the Manager of the company “Wagenborg Kazakhstan BV”.
More than a week ago, a cargo ship from Iran RASHA1 ran aground off the coast of Aktau. Attempts to remove it were not successful.
– The ship is loaded. At the time of the first attempt to remove it from the stranded draught of the vessel was about three and a half meters. He now sits at a depth of slightly more than two meters. Almost two-thirds of the hull sitting on the bottom. We tried to pull the ship with ropes, but it sits tight. If you continue to try, you can damage the hull and the water resistance will be compromised. In this case, there is a possibility of the ship sinking, said Zhaksylyk Kopbayev, the Manager of the company “Wagenborg Kazakhstan BV”.
To remove the ship off the rocks failed for a number of reasons, experts say “Wagenborg Kazakhstan BV”. Maybe, unloading of cargo, which will ease the weight of the vehicle, will remove it.
