North Sea

Identity of 102-year-old shipwreck in the North Sea discovered during Ghost Fishing mission

On August 4, 2018, during a ghost net recovery dive at this shipwreck in the framework of our activities for the “Healthy Seas” initiative, Ben Oortwijn (26) from Ijmuiden, a Ghost Fishing volunteer diver and passionate North Sea wreck diver, discovered the production plate of one of the donkey boilers of the ship as he was trying to get to a piece of fishing gear which appeared to be hooked behind it.
