Bulk Carrier "RUBYMAR" - 2024 Mar 03

On 18 February 2024, the Bulk Carrier "RUBYMAR" (GT 19,420 - DWT 32,211), laden with 22,000 tonnes of ammonium phosphate sulfate fertilizer in bulk, was severely damaged by Houthi missiles off the coast of Yemen. The vessel was en route from Ras Al Khair, Saudi Arabia, to Varna, Bulgaria.
The casualty was evacuated immediately and in view of an environmental disaster in the southern Red Sea, the shipowners were minded to engage Tsavliris for the salvage operation.
Tsavliris prepared to mobilise a tug from Aden, an anti-pollution vessel from Greece, salvage team, divers team, equipment etc.
Sadly, the vessel sank on 2 March as she had been slowly taking on water since the attack.
