June 18th – Upriver Draft

June 18th 2020


In view of the ongoing developing situation and different communications and instructions being issued by Sanitary Authorities of the Argentine Government we have chosen to send a consolidated daily report at the closing of working hours with an update of the day’s news.

Further to our CIRCULAR this morning. Hidrovia have positioned a dredger, the HENRI PITOT, to Km 338 of the River Parana to clear the area where the mv KYDONIA grounded yesterday, Wednesday June 17th. The dredger has been working during the day. After preliminary work a survey has been carried out. The survey has detected additional shallow areas and the dredger will be carrying out more clearing. Later, during the night tonight, a further survey will take place to determine the effective transit draft and we will be reporting back with the result. In the meantime transit of vessels in the area is not permitted.


Will keep you posted.

Best regards,
Antares Servicios Maritimos S.A.
