Semco Salvage & Towage has refloated the grounded Alam Manis, a handymax belonging to Malaysian Bulk Carriers (MBC). Both Semco and MBC are owned by the same man, Malaysian tycoon Robert Kuok.
Alam Manis had made various attempts to refloat since it grounded 10 days but was unsuccessful.
Now refloated, it will head to Pipavav for a damage inspection.
Total salvage costs are expected to be around $800,000, MBC said in a release today.
The Alam Maris has not been the luckiest of ships. In July 2015 it ran aground off the Philippines.
