Höegh Osaka update

16 January 2015

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) today makes the following announcement:


“Winds in the Solent around the Hoegh Osaka reached 60 knots last night. Nevertheless she was held secure by the tugs.

The salvors are aboard the vessel adjusting the ballast system and hoping to start pumping water from the car decks over the next 24 hours.

If the good weather continues to allow the salvors to work we will hope there will be a reduction in the list of the vessel over the next few days.

Divers are hoping to carry out an inspection of the hull today.

We will issue a further update tomorrow.”
