Drone footage from ship sinking in Piraeus port (video)

Salvage operations successful so far

Impressive drone footage shows the half-sunk ‘Panagia Tinos’ ship docked at pier E4 at the port of Piraeus. After the efforts of tug boats and divers the vessel is partially balanced, allowing mechanics to board the ship and repair the ruptured parts and then pump water out. After the water has been completely removed from the ships’s hull it will be tugged away. Meanwhile, cleaning crews form Antipollution have spread 400 meters of floating booms to contain possible sea pollution from petrol liquid spills.
