Grounded freighter BERG total loss after recent storm
General cargo ship BERG, intentionally beached in Feodosia Bay, Crimea, Black sea, said to be recognized as total loss after recent storm, which battered Crimean coast. The ship sank, for all purposed, with only forecastle and top of superstructure remaining above waterline. Salvors during February siphoned from BERG all fuel, so reportedly, she poses no environmental threat.
Accident itself remains a mystery, no explanation so far as to how BERG was breached in waters with no navigational dangers around. Recently it was said in official news, that the area where BERG was breached, has been turned into military drilling zone.
