Latest update 06 January 2014.

Over the last 24 hours the salvors, Svitzer, have been making on board assessments of the vessel and analysis of the situation.

Throughout the ongoing salvage operation Svitzer have reported to the Secretary of State's Representative for Maritime Salvage & Intervention (SOSREP), Hugh Shaw, who is the UK Government's appointed authority, and who makes the ultimate decisions on procedure and agrees the final salvage plan for any shipping casualty in UK waters.

We have full confidence in the work that they do in relation to our vessel 'Höegh Osaka'.

For further information about the salvage operation please contact the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) who represent the SOSREP.
