The roro vessel that listed in the Bay of Biscay and taken to the port of Bilbao, has been righted.
The Panama-flagged, 10,000 dwt vessel was under way from Gabon to Le Havre with cargo of 3,600 tons of wood in bundles and a dozen pieces of heavy machinery. She began to list at about 130 nm off Cape Ortegal, Galicia. She was then towed to the port of Bilbao by salvors and underwent repairs. The vessel listed to starboard at about 51 degrees, and her list was reduced to 26 degrees by February 18. At last she recovered completely on monday.
The vessel is under investigation for damages due to the prolonged period of operation and tow at severe angles of list. The complete reason for the listing is not yet released. The owner must decide on continuing the voyage.
