Efforts are on to salvage a merchant ship Kew Bridge which has been stranded off the Ratnagiri harbour since September 14.

Three tugs from Mumbai have reached the spot where the ship has been grounded in soft mud.

The Kew Bridge is an LPG carrier with about 8,000 metric tonnes of Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) on board.

Salvage operations are being carried out by a private agency with the coastguard monitoring efforts to ensure no oil spill occurs.

According to reports, the ship owned by Atlantics Shipping Corporation has been hired by Bharat Petroleum, which has a contract of supplying gas to Finolex Industries.
