Kasel Track Record
Job was carried out in two phases.
Under Phase I, which took 10 days, some 630 tonnes of phenol were removed.
Since the ship was lying on her side, holes were drilled into her in
order for the cargo to be pumped out. The vessel was then filled with
ballast water to ensure she did not prematurely regain buoyancy.
Another two days were spent in setting up the equipment for her refloating.
In Phase 2, the ballast water was pumped out before a floating crane
uprighted and lifted the Endah Lestari. This also took 10 days.
