IUMI Webinar: Golden Ray – analysis of the salvage and legal issues arising

The Golden Ray was carrying about 4,200 vehicles when it lost stability and grounded as it departed the Port of Brunswick, Georgia in September 2019. In order to dismantle the wreck, the salvors have opted to cut it into large sections for removal by barge. The VB-10000 catamaran, which is equipped with twin gantry cranes, has been modified specifically for the cutting and lifting operation.

In this webinar, two expert speakers will look into the most recent developments of the legal and technical aspects arising from this complex incident. First, Mauricio Garrido, President, T&T Salvage LLC, who oversees the salvage operations of the Golden Ray, will outline the unique technical solutions found to remove the wreck and further discuss some of the challenges his team has faced during these operations. This will be followed by Joseph G. Grasso, Partner, Wiggin and Dana, who will share insights into specific legal issues related to this case, particularly pollution and wreck removal.

The audience will be invited to participate in a Q&A with the speakers. Questions can also be submitted prior to the webinar to
