On April 15, 2015 Aegean’s M/T Rizopon launched a rescue operation of 82 immigrants following the instructions of the Italian Maritime Rescue Coordination Center. The 65 male and 17 female immigrants were found aboard an inflatable boat in the waters between Italy and Libya. The operation ran smoothly and M/T Rizopon safely rescued the immigrants. Five men were diagnosed sick and were in isolation. The crew provided all immigrants with first aid, dry clothes, water and food. On April 15, 2015 night hours the immigrants were delivered to the Italian Port Authorities at the port of Cagliari, as per given instructions.
We would like to congratulate our Master, Officers and crew for their good seamanship and the third successful rescue operation by M/T Rizopon.
