Update: Transocean Winner awaiting final approvals
Sea fastening work to make the Transocean Winner rig ready for its journey on the back of the Hawk heavy lift vessel has been completed and signed off.
The Hawk remains in Broad Bay while final approvals are obtained for her to take the rig to Malta and then onto Turkey. These approvals have to be from all parties involved under EU directives.
Once those are in place, Hugh Shaw, SOSREP will give his consent for the passage to begin. However, future weather and sea conditions will continue to be reviewed and the Master of the Hawk will be allowed to delay departure if he feels they aren’t favourable for the journey to be made.
