The floating crane GPS ATLAS was moved into position above the wreck of FLYING PHANTOM on Monday, and work has progressed since then in preparation for lifting her from the river bed. Assisting the crane is GRAY MAMMOTH, a 27 metre, 224 gross ton multicat owned by Felixarc Marine Ltd, part of the Adsteam Group which was recently taken over by Svitzer. Based at Felixstowe, GRAY MAMMOTH was built in 1989, and has been laying moorings for GPS ATLAS.
