HOEGH OSAKA LIST REDUCED BY 13 DEGREES

hoeghosaka39The list of the Hoegh Osaka has been reduced by 13 degrees to 39 as salvage work continues to safely right the vessel.

The weather on scene at Alpha Anchorage continues to be favourable and the operation to remove clean water from the vessel’s lower car decks continues today (Tuesday). However, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency say it is now unlikely that the Hoegh Osaka will be moved to a berth at Southampton Port tomorrow (Wednesday).

The vessel will stay at Alpha Anchorage until the list has been reduced to around 15 degrees.
