As per the San Antonio newspaper Proa Regional with one photo of this ship (http://www.elproa.cl/web/detallenoticia.asp?id=14213) , the following article was published:
Después de cuatro días de trabajo e inspecciones a bordo del “Ocean Breeze”, luego del término de la Operación de Reflotamiento ocurrida el viernes 26 de abril, los informes emanados por la empresa Titan Maritime Ltda. (UK) y supervisado por la Autoridad Marítima, se constató que el casco presentaba severos daños estructurales que afectaban gravemente la condición de flotabilidad, existiendo una elevada probabilidad que los restos se hundieran. Sumado a ello, la inoperatividad de sus sistemas de gobierno generaba un escenario inviable para cualquier desplazamiento hacia un astillero cercano – puerto de Talcahuano - o intento de reparación “in situ”.
After four working days and surveys on board M/V Ocean Breeze, after finishing the Refloating Operation which took place the last friday 26th of April of 2013, the reports issued by the enterprise Titan Maritime Ltda. (UK) and supervised by the Maritime Authority, it was verified that the hull showed severe structural damages which seriously affected the floatability condition of the ship, having a high risk that the shipwreck were sank. Apart of the aforementioned, the inoperative condition of her steering systems this caused one unviable situation to any voyage to the closest ship`s yard, ASMAR at the port of Talcahuano or to carry out an intent of repairs in situ.
Frente al categórico resultado de los informes técnicos de la estructura del “Ocean Breeze”, y habiéndose cumplido con todas las etapas y normas que estipula la reglamentación marítima nacional e internacional, durante la madrugada del día de hoy, el resto náufrago fue vertido a 46 millas (aproximadamente 85 km.) de San Antonio, a una profundidad de aproximadamente 2 mil metros.
Facing up the categoric result of the “Ocean Breeze” structure technical reports, and having been complied with all the procedures and rules which are stipulated in the national and international maritime rules, during the first hours of today, the shipwreck was scuttled at 46 miles (approximately 85 km) from San Antonio, at a depth of 2 thousands meters approximately.
Por lo anterior, la Autoridad Marítima Nacional dispuso la aplicación del Convenio de Londres de la Organización Marítima Internacional de Naciones Unidas, vigente desde el año1972 y ratificado por Chile el año 2012, el cual establece las medidas medio ambientales que deben adoptarse previo a la autorización de un vertimiento para la protección de la flora y fauna marina, definiendo un completo informe de todos los elementos que la empresa Titan Maritime (UK) Ltda. debió retirar del resto náufrago antes de su vertimiento para que no causen ningún daño al ecosistema marino.
In view of the aforementioned, the National Maritime Authority set out the application of the UNIMO London Agreement, in force since the year 1972 and ratified by Chile the year 2012, in which is stated the environmental measures which must be taken previous to a spillage to protect the marine for a and fauna, issuing a complete report of all the elements that the enterprise Titan Maritime Ltda. (UK), had to remove from the shipwreck before pouring them in order that thes ones cannot cause any damage to marine ecosystem.
El “Ocean Breeze” fue trasladado a su punto final por los mismos remolcadores que lo acompañaron desde su reflotamiento, el “Rhea” y “Puelo”.
The “Ocean Breeze” was towed aqt her final point by the same tugs the USA flagged “Rhea” and the Chilean flagged “Puelo” which accompanied her since her refloating.
Finalmente, la Autoridad Marítima mantuvo en el área las medidas de seguridad y los sistemas de vigilancia ambiental necesarios para velar por la salvaguarda de la vida humana en el mar y el medio ambiente marino.
Finally, the Maritime Authority kept in the area the safety measures and the necessary enviromental watching systems to protect the safeguard of the human life in the sea and the marine environment.

|Hi Rarotonga, please what does the news say? I can't read the language.|
|Jens Boldt on Jun 27, 2013 07:32 (5 months ago)|
|Hi Mohammed, if my translation is correct, she has been refloated but it was discovered that she was too badly damaged to be repaired. Instead she was towed some 85 km out to the sea and deliberately sunk...|

What's in the name of the ship.

As per the last news about the present status of this vessel which were published in the El Mercurio, Chilean newspaper the date 5th of October of 2012, it is stated that the Ship’s owners of have declared a Total Constructive Loss for this Ship, therefore the Hull Underwriters in London have resolved to apply for an international tender for the removal of the Ship from her grounding position,
Ship’s Owners took this decision, once they analyzed that the costs of the salvage and later repairs of the ships were higher than her value, thus they decided that the Underwriters assumed the control of the future of the ship.
On the other hand, the Chilean Maritime Authority declared through the speaker that the tender adjudication could occur within two weeks, the firm who wins shall have to present a complete and detailed working plan to the Maritime Authority for its approval before initiating any work.
This plan must consider the removal of the 30.000 MT of wheat and soya still stowed in the ship’s holds already with a high risk of decomposition, the scrapping of the vessel in situ or the refloating of the ship to be carried to the open seas for sinking her.

We have new information about the future of this ship, and are in the process of removal of cargo from the holds, so the fuel through hoses to the beach.
|Juan Carlos C. on Sep 08, 2012 05:17 (1 year ago)|
It has been several days since it ran aground on the beach and still no positive results for the rescue of the fuel as cargo, still swells and high waves, moreover, that this careening toward the beach and has been a movement of the minus 20 degrees, still waiting....

|Wow! Fantastic and dramatic picture! Thanks Juan.|
|Juan Carlos C. on Aug 20, 2012 12:51 (1 year ago)|
So is Mark
This week we'll see what happens eventually.
|Tonga on Aug 20, 2012 05:44 (1 year ago)|
Juan Carlos; that is a really excellent shot. - As you say, given her situation and the way the seas work here, it is difficult to imagine that she can be rescued from this position.
|Juan Carlos C. on Aug 18, 2012 06:03 (1 year ago)|
If it is true that in the San Antonio Bay there's always a heavy swell, the times I've traveled to these shores the boat ride is always exciting, keep you informed in the coming days on what happens with this ship...
|REG on Aug 17, 2012 14:37 (1 year ago)|
|I'm glad to hear they got the crew off safely. Hope they get the ship off too, before she breaks up and causes an oil spill. I've sailed along the Chilean coast and been to San Antonio. It's a nice place, with great fishing, and doesn't deserve to be fouled up with oil. Unfortunately, there's usually a pretty good swell running from the west in that part of the world, even when a storm isn't blowing.|

|Cedric Hacke on Aug 16, 2012 22:44 (1 year ago)|
|Let's hope she doesn't break apart due to the waves :s|
|Juan Carlos C. on Aug 16, 2012 20:50 (1 year ago)|
|We do not know when will be the boat on the beach, waves are anticipated for 6 more days|
