VOS Sympathy Supports Oil Recovery Ops of MV Flinterstar

Vroon Offshore Services have contracted their VOS Sympathy, DP2 Subsea Support Vessel, to Dutch Salvors Multraship Salvage B.V. and Smit Salvage B.V. to support the oil recovery operations of MV Flinterstar, which partially sunk off the Belgian coast following a collision on October 06, 2015.

A Dutch freighter sunk after colliding with the LNG carrier Al-Oraiq. All 12 crew members onboard Flinterstar were rescued.

After the collision of the two vessels, a small oil sheen was sighted.

The ship owner Flinter has contracted SMIT and Multraship to pump the remaining oil from the vessel.

VOS Sympathy is assisting with receiving and storing the oil retrieved from the casualty, which will be safely discharged ashore, as well as supporting the salvage crew, Vroon informed.
