Bulk carrier ANGEL I (35,000DWT, built 1982), fully laden with bagged rice, run aground on a coral reef in the northern part of Mauritius on 8th August 2011. FOS signed an LOF with Owners and Scopic was invoked. In the course of the following weeks, salvors engaged tugs MAHANWARA from Sri Lanka, NDONGENI from Mozambique, CORAL SEA FOS from her salvage station in the UAE, local bunker tanker MINORQUE, bulk carrier THOR GITTA and hopper dredger RIVER BEE from South Africa to assist. In the course of the following months Five Oceans successfully removed all bunkers from the casualty (about 800mt), lightered, landed ashore about 5,500mt of sound cargo and disposed 5,000 mt of wet cargo (free of bags). The casualty was successfully refloated on 26th November and removed from the coral reef but could not be kept afloat due to excessive bottom damage, despite a total pumping capacity in excess of 4,000 cub.m/hr being operated onboard at the time. She eventually sunk several miles off the coast at a depth of 4,000 metres.
