Towage and Salvage Corporation (MTSC) safely completed the salvage of the fast
ferry, St. Domic-1. The vessel sank in Batangas Bay and was blocking the
approach to a commercial terminal. MTSC removed the wreck from the seabed by cutting
the vessel into smaller sections and lifting those pieces using a 100-metric ton floating
crane onto MTSC’s 1,900 DWT barge. The work was safely completed on time and in close
coordination with the Philippine Coast Guard.
