It is with pleasure that the ‘Combinatie Salvage Tricolor’ can report that the first cut of the TRICOLOR has been completed. This morning at 10.55 a.m the specially designed cutting wire sliced through the last centimetres, completing a cut exceeding 30 meters. This cut was probably the most difficult cut of the entire cutting operation. This was due the fact that the wire had to go through parts of the engine room and the very thick propeller shaft.
