NEW ORLEANS — T&T Bisso Response successfully refloated a 5,700 TEU container vessel in Brazil.
Led by Senior Salvage Master Ted Hosking, the T&T Bisso team safely lightered bunkers and used three high-horsepower local tugs in the operation. After pumping the bunkers back to the vessel and conducting an underwater survey, the crew safely delivered the vessel and cargo to its owners with no damage to the environment.
“This operation marks a major milestone for T&T Bisso as we continue to strengthen our position in the worldwide emergency response market,” said W.A. “Beau” Bisso IV, president and chief executive officer of the company.
