Elbing IX

The goal in 2019 was to free the wreck of the freighter Elbing IX, which sank in 1914, from ghost nets. The wreck is 80 meters long and lies at a depth of 50 meters. It was covered in nets from bow to stern. Sometimes there were still floating bodies on the nets, which ensured that the nets were not on the wreck but were floating up to 20 meters above the wreck, an extremely dangerous situation for all sea creatures and us divers. The conditions under which we had to work on the wreck only allowed the use of very experienced divers.
