Press Release: Response offshore Malta

On the 10 August, MEGATUGS, the OSRA associates in Greece responded to a call for assistance on the basis of an LOF from the MV A Ladybug lying in 'Area 3' offshore Malta. The ship had a damaged anchor and was without fuels, and was drifting. The area is a popular STS operation area and the drifting presented a hazard to surrounding ships. The salvage operation was undertaken through the intervention of OSRA Malta. The ship had exactly the same problem just over a month later on the 18th September when it had to re-engage MEGATUGS on another salvage operation.
