    Punta Arenas rescues semi-submersible rig stranded in the port's muddy bottom

    The Zhen Hua 28 was stuck in a sand and muddy bottom, probably up to four meters deep, but was impressive because of its size

    A semi-submersible rig of Chinese origin commissioned to Total and which grounded 200 meters from the coast in Punta Arenas following strong winds and tides that let it lose from its moorings in the port, has been rescued on the high tide. Apparently the huge vessel has not suffered major 'visible damages', reports La Prensa Austral.
