CICT salvages storm-ravaged ‘MV Theseus’
container carrier that sustained damage in tropical storm ‘Sagar’ in the Gulf of Aden, nearly 2,000 nautical miles from Sri Lanka, has been turned around in just 36 hours by Colombo International Container Terminals (CICT) when it arrived in the Port of Colombo.
After CICT’s efficient operation which was completed in less than a day and a half despite the harsh weather conditions, the MV Theseus was swiftly despatched to its next stop in Singapore.
This was the third such salvage operation carried out by CICT in the past three years. In 2015 CICT completed a complex salvage operation for the weather-damaged MOL-Cosmos and in 2017 aided in the salvage of the Panama-flagged MSC Daniela which caught fire 120 nautical miles west of the Colombo Port.
