    Milford Haven the biggest wreck in the Mediterranean

    For Adam and Eugenio, this third round did be the most intense in they had to overcome various test requirements to complete their TDI Megalodon Decompression Instructor Air Diluent training began some months ago.
    Demonstrations, performances, physical test and rescue, before arriving the much desired goal.
    But thanks to their experience in CCR, which both have passed these tests with good notes.
    To finish well these days we made two dives on the tanker wreck Amoco Milford Haven tragically sunk in 1991 off the port of Genoa, causing one of the worst ecological disasters in Mediterranean.
    Today it become a wonderful destination for many divers come from Europe and overseas.
    A special thank to my big friend Felice Techdive Savona, recently moved into new diving inside the port of Varazze.
    Here are some photos taken during the two dives. The first day we found a very poor visibility but the day after visibility was good much and we take some pictures of the giant propeller and rudder.
    My congratulations to the two new instructors.

    hello Aldo.

    well done on the feat. the pictures look very nice. amazing.

    is that the wreck of "Amoco Cadiz"? is it the same wreck or is there a sister ship somewhere else?

    Hi Spyros,
    The Amoco Cadiz is in France (Britany, Altantic ocean) and caused a major desaster in 1978 releasing 227,000 metric tons of crude oil. You can dive the Amoco Cadiz, at least what's left of her after she's been destroyed by mines by the French navy.
    The milford Haven is one of its sisterships and caused a catastrophy off the Genoa oil port loosing 140,000 metric tons of crude oil and burning for 3 days (1991).
    The other 2 sisterships are the Amoco Singapore and the Amoco Europa.
    For reference for our North American friends, both desasters are similar to the one caused by the Exxon Valdes.
    Hope this helps
    Best
    Philippe
