The process to remove a sunken tugboat in Port Castries is almost completed, officials have confirmed.
The Doggersbank sunk in Port Castries last October, and is currently being secured to remove any debris that may be inside the vessel.
Officials of the MVP Walrus said the floating of the Doggersbank is progressing well. The team has already inserted lifting bags which is filled with air to allow the vessel to float to the surface.
The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) is monitoring the operation and has a plan in place to protect the maritime environment within the Castries harbour during the resurfacing.
Once lifted, the Doggersbank will be moved to the La Toc Bay where the owner will decide its future.
