Title: Blue star
Post by: dickt on December 12, 2019, 04:58:34 am
It seems that oil tanker blue Star is towed off the rocks brought to Ferrol. Has anyone more news about the salvage?

BLUE STAR departed El Ferrol on Tuesday in tow VB HISPANIA for Turkey.  Earlier reports suggested that she was to be repaired In Spain but now press announce she is heading for demolition.

But I wonder, noting that the destination of VB HISPANIA is on AIS as Tuzla, rather than Aliaga.

Despite repeated reports about the ship being broken up, the owner insists the 'Blue Star' will be repaired.
