The work continues.

Today the sunken tanker «Delphi» was raised with the help of tugs. Now the new position of the vessel is being recorded.

This was announced by the head of the Odessa seaport administration Ruslan Sakhautdinov.

“At this stage, we have a roll of 30 degrees instead of 90 degrees that we had. Air was pumped into some of the compartments by special compressors, some of the rooms were freed from water by pumps, and water was pumped into some of the rooms, on the contrary. Two tugs in the complex made it possible to obtain the overturning moment that was necessary. In this position, you can already work on the ship, you can already move around the deck «, — said Sakhautdinov.
