Panaji: Almost a month after it ran aground off Goa coast, the order to salvage Naphtha laden ship would be given to a private firm on Tuesday, Chief Minsiter Pramod Sawant said on Monday.

Sawant told reporters that Dutch-based marine engineering firm will be entrusted the work to salvage the ship which is having Naphtha loaded in it.

“Mormugao Port Trust will issue order to the firm to salvage the ship on Tuesday (tomorrow). Director General of Shipping which has been monitoring the process has informed the same to the state government,” the chief minister said.

He said that the Dutch-based company would be tasked the work to empty Naphtha from the tanker and also salvage the ship which has run aground off Goa coast since October last week.

Sawant said that the action would be initiated against those responsible for the running aground of the ship only after the vessel is salvaged from that place and danger posed due to its presence has been solved.

The initial attempts to salvage the unmanned tanker Nu Shi Nalini had failed prompting the state government to involve private player do salvage it.

Sawant has been drawing flak for his failure to salvage the ship which has caused environmental danger to the entire coast.

Director General of Shipping has formed a five member committee to oversee  off loading of Naphtha from the vessel.
