 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The biggest Wreck in the mediteranean sea.
The Tanker Amoco Milford haven sunk the 14 April 1991.

The supertanker Haven was launched in Cadiz during 1973: she was 335m-long, 52m-wide, with a maximum capacity of 230000 tons

The complete name of the tanker was Amoco Milford Haven and a true spell was over the Haven and its sister-ships: the Haven itself had a throubled life: she was seriously damaged by a missile in the Persian gulf during the Iran-Iraq war; the Amoco Cadiz sunk off the coasts of Brittany in 1978, causing a horrible ecologic disaster; the Maria Alejandra exploded off the coasts of Mauretania in 1980; and the Mycene exploded and sunk off Senegal coasts.

On April 11, 1991, the Haven was anchored off Genova Multedo harbour: an explosion occourred in a tank and the Captain and four men of the crew died.
A tug tried to tow the tanker closer to the coast, but the bow was broken off and sunk: now it lies at a depth of -490m.
After three days and a series of explosions, the Haven sunk on April 14.

The wreck lies in perfect navigation trim on a sandy bottom at a depth of -85m, but the upper part of the structure reachs -32m: the funnel has been dismantled because it was dangerous for navigation.

The Haven is very popular among local scuba divers (the ship is by far the largest wreck in Mediterranean suitable for diving), but the dive is considered not easy: after some deadly accidents, the Harbour Authorities issued severe regulations for scuba diving.

free diving (2) - En 1991, le gigantesque pétrolier Haven fait naufrage au large de Gênes. 23 ans plus tard, trois apnéistes de haut niveau s’aventurent dans cette immense épave qui s’avère être la plus grande de la Méditerranée ! Avec 280 mètres de long sur 50 mètres de large, ce terrain de jeu pharaonique a de quoi laisser libre cours à l’imagination des plongeurs.

Guillaume Néry, Morgan Bourc’His et Rémy Dubern sont des pointes dans le monde de l’apnée. Guillaume Néry, l’un des meilleurs apnéistes français, a déjà détenu plusieurs records du monde. Pour parvenir à cette épave spectaculaire, ils utilisent des scooters sous-marins qui leur permettent de gagner du temps. Il faut dire que les secondes sont précieuses quand on n’utilise pas de bouteille d’oxygène. Chaque plongée correspond à environ 3 minutes sous l’eau. Toutes les images ont été tournées entre 40 et 50 mètres de profondeur, filmées par Jérôme Espla et son équipe, avec une caméra RED EPIC.
