Vung Tau City to salvage the Vanuatu craning ship

Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has just ordered the People’s Committee of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province to salvage the Vanuatu craning ship Wealthy Global that caught fire on the Front Beach of Vung Tau City in October 2013.

The Ministry of Transport will cooperate with the People’s Committee to clean up the wreckage.

The Wealthy Global got stuck in a sandbank in July 2010. The People’s Committee of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province fined the ship owner VND15 million leaving the ship at the spot in March 2013.

The ship is nearly 200 meters long and 50 meters wide, weighing 25,000 tons with capacity of 5,000 tons and two heliports.
