Oil recovery operations have recovered approximately 150 cubic metre (m3) of oil/seawater mixture from the site of the CSL Virginia and Ulysses collision, according to the Maritime Prefecture of the Mediterranean.
Operations continued on Thursday with aircraft from the French Navy and Customs Office providing guidance to the Franco-Italian team of oil recovery vessels on various locations for operations.
A milestone was achieved on 9.30pm (French time) on Thursday night as CSL Virginia and Ulysses both separated under the combined effect of wave movements and previous extrication attempts.
The Ulysses will remain in the location until an assessment on Friday (12 October), while the CSL Virginia is expected to remain at the anchorage for a period of time.
An anti-pollution dam has been set up around the two ships to prevent any risk of additional pollution.
