After 3 months, Salvors have successfully refloated the stricken V.L.O.C. Stellar Banner.

The discharging procedure was done by a geared bulk vessel equipped with cargo grabs that was deployed to remove approximately 145,000 metric tons of iron ore from the Stellar Banners cargo holds. The cargo extraction reduced the vessels starboard list by 12 degrees and thus exposing part of the main decks that was previously submerged.
