Golden Ray to be dismantled and removed

584 Golden Ray

 

The Unified Command unit established for car carrier, Golden Ray, that ran aground and capsized in St. Simons Sound while it was leaving the Port of Brunswick, Georgia, on Sept. 8th has decided that the vessel is impossible to safely right and refloat fully intact, and will therefore be cut in place and removed.

As of Oct. 12, 225,000 gallons of fuel have been removed from the forward fuel tanks and removal of the remaining fuel and lubricant tanks continues.  Around 300,000 gallons of fuel was on the ship when it overturned. The Golden Ray is operated by the South Korean shipping and logistics company Hyundai Glovis.
