M/V Golden Ray Salvage Continues with Removal of Section Seven

(scroll down for photos!)

After completion of a lengthy and challenging cutting operation, tug crews removed Section Seven of the Golden Ray wreck from the Environmental Protection Barrier (EPB) by barge on Tuesday, April 27th. The section transited to a facility at Mayors Point Terminal for further sea-fastening in preparation for an ocean transit to a recycling facility in Louisiana. Collected data from fixed monitors and hydrographic surveys confirms that the remaining wreck is stable. Wreck removal personnel will shift the VB-10000 and prepare the cutting apparatus for cutting operations to separate Section Three of the remaining wreck.

The wreck is being dismantled in eight sections – the two closest to the bow (Sections One and Two) and two closest to the stern (Section Seven and Eight) have now been cut and removed.  Four amidship remain.
