Ukraine has once again postponed the operation to raise the sunken tanker near Odessa

The Great Maritime Power Ukraine for the 4th time postponed the operation to lift the tanker. We are talking about the tanker Delfi, which sank in the immediate vicinity of Odessa. For several months the tanker has been lying on its side near one of the Odessa beaches. At one time, Vladimir Zelensky arrived at the place and, stating that it was a shame for the country, demanded that the tanker be raised as soon as possible and transported to the place of repair.


They immediately listened to the words of the President of Ukraine and organized a super-operation to lift the offshore oil tanker. But something went wrong, and the cables used broke twice when trying to align the position of the tanker. At the same time, impressive volumes of oil products flowed into the sea. After that, the operation was postponed several times.

The new postponement is due to the fact that meteorologists have identified "the unsafe operation against the background of a sharp deterioration in weather conditions." It is stated that the wind speed in the Odessa region per hour of the vessel's lifting operation will reach 14 m / s, the wave height will exceed 1,5 m.
Statement by Ukrainian weather forecasters:

“White lambs” appeared on the surface of the sea, which are the harbingers of an imminent storm.

Ukrainian experts add that the operation is postponed:

It is necessary to wait for complete calm.

At the same time, in Ukraine itself, they say that with the onset of autumn it is possible to wait for calm for a very long time, but never wait ...

The plans to lift the tanker include the use of a special pontoon, the role of which will be played by a lighter. The operation also involves the Atlas-4 floating crane. Initially, it is planned to pump out water from the inner compartments of the sunken tanker.

Of course, one can continue to ironic about Ukraine's unluckiness in raising a tanker, however, in our country there are situations that cause, at least, questions. One of these is the lack of work to raise the floating dock PD-50 in the Murmansk region. It sank on the night of October 30, 2018. Of course, lifting a giant floating dock is more difficult to accomplish than lifting a relatively small tanker, but Russia also has much more opportunities than Ukraine.

    Here, in the "Political Review" article appears "Why Zelensky is ashamed to go to Odessa"

    I think for this reason, if there is still a place for shame in his role ...

      I will add two more points.
      1. Not without "zrada" and this time. One of the vessels participating in the Delphi rise had an owner from an "aggressor country".
      2. The rise is carried out not with budget funds, but at the expense of two local businessmen.

        Most likely, the "Great Maritime Power" Ukraine is not up to such trifles as some kind of ship. :))) All forces are thrown into the fight against the axressor :)))

      Here, in the "Political Review" there is an article "Why Zelensky is ashamed to go to Odessa"

      Well, in general, there is nothing to be ashamed of, Mr. Zele, because the bunkering tanker is not Ukrainian de jure, it has a Moldovan port of mines, the case of Moldova and the ship owner first of all, and then Ukraine. Although the history of this bunkering vessel is murky, so is the history of Ukraine.

        Yes, of course, there is nothing to be ashamed of, except once again to sign the impotence of their own power.

        ship raising is the case of Moldova and the shipowner in the first place, and then Ukraine.

        Yes, Moldova, I think, is neither cold nor hot from the fact that a sunken ship is poisoning Ukrainian water. As it were, according to the logic of things, it is Ukraine that should be vitally interested in the rise. Or is it already Lloyd's jurisdiction?

          Not quite so, every accident and incident does not benefit the maritime flag of Moldova, everything is monitored in the international maritime organization IMO, and a rating of flags is created on the basis of these data, which affects freight traffic, especially insurance rates.

            I'm talking about something else. The ship has already sunk, all reputational losses have already occurred. And from the fact that the ship is raised or not, nothing will change for Moldova. I suppose it already belongs to the insured ... And everything that gets out of it into the water is a problem for Ukraine.

      It does not matter that the "great sea power" Russia cannot raise one of the two (Swedish)) floating docks that drowned in the Northern Fleet (Kuzya suffered in this case). It is important that the neighbor's cow is half dead.

    A healthy "sense of humor" from the author ((((Compare a tanker with a displacement of 1634 tons - with a floating dock with a displacement of 215 860 tons !!!) Although it is clear - the morning - my head hurts - I think with a "creak"))))

      Moreover, he himself raised the problem off the coast of Odessa and immediately scolded Russia
      lack of work to raise the floating dock PD-50 in the Murmansk region
      ... And what about the towing of Ukrainian warships from the Crimea?

      Yes, they do not threaten with their little hands, they know that these little hands will simply break off, but you can shake from under the fence. No one will climb behind the master's fence.

      Yes, you know, I’m not sad anymore, but funny for a long time already, let “quarter-95” amuse us.
      The first time it was funny when I watched Yushchenko's T / B election race "where the aunt-announcer says" Yushchenko has orange stucco with a scarf, the walkers are the same, and even the laces are orange. "At first the thought was" Maybe the sick are their number 6 ", and later, when I heard, and most importantly saw in reality, "Who does not jump, is that Muscovite?", I realized that this is the norm, and such people must be admitted to the European Union, their own people, with the same zuhenvey.

    Against the background of the absence of a looped sewerage system in Odessa and the discharge of the city's sewage waste into the Black Sea, all the waste of the Delfi tanker even cleanses the difficult bacteriological and intestinal stick situation in the coastal waters of Odessa.
    Let me remind you that in 197o there was an epidemic of cholera in Odessa and shipping in the entire Soviet Crimea was closed. Odessa lived on imported drinking water.
    And the Ukrainian cart in Odessa is still there.

      Or maybe they can dig the sea for them from old memory, take part of it from the pelvis - drain it - and use tractors to the shore, from there immediately to the metal warehouse who goes ahead!

    What is the depth above the sunken floating dock? does it interfere with shipping, tell me? ... a lot of ships sink, but not all raise ... it has always been this way and will be so
