Before lifting, the salvage team plans to remove fuel from the Ingstad’s tanks to prevent further pollution. Diving contractor SubseaPartner has deployed the dive support vessel Risøy to the site, and it will conduct the defueling operation. The frigate had about 120,000 gallons of fuel aboard at the time of the casualty.
