On 25 February 2016, Tsavliris Salvage mobilized the tug "Ona Don Lorenzo" (5,500 BHP – 62 TBP) from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the assistance of the Bulk Carrier "ALKIMOS HERACLES" (GT 43,007, DWT 81,992) partly laden with 50,000 tons of iron ore, grounded at KM 27, Canal Punta Indio.

Later on that day, the vessel refloated by own means, whereupon the tug was instructed to return to Buenos Aires.

"ALKIMOS HERACLES" proceeded to Recalada outer anchorage for routine inspection by the Coast Guard.
