Ocean Infinity will be working with the government of South Korea in the search for the wreckage of the ship Stellar Daisy, which was lost on 31 March 2017.

The vessel was lost in the South Atlantic Ocean approximately 2500 nautical miles due east of Uruguay with 24 people on board, whilst transporting iron ore from Brazil to China.

Operations are expected to start in January 2019. Ocean Infinity will deploy a fleet of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) simultaneously to search for Stellar Daisy. Upon locating the wreck there will be an extensive 3D imaging survey.

Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO, said: “For the sake of all involved we sincerely hope that we can find Stellar Daisy and be able to collect as much evidence about her loss as we can. As always with deep sea search there can be no guarantee of success as neither the precise location nor the specific circumstances of her loss are known. We are grateful that the Government of South Korea awarded us the contract for this challenging project and affirmed Ocean Infinity’s position as the leading deep-sea search and recovery services provider in the world.
