Still no plan to free ‘Moby Dig’  

Credit:  By Michael Drummond | Worthing Herald | 08 June 2017 | www.worthingherald.co.uk ~~

There is still no date set to free stranded digger ‘Moby Dig’ from the sea.

It has been more than two months since the 80-tonne elevator excavator got stuck while working on cabling for E.ON’s Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, but still no plans are in place to liberate it, the company has confirmed.

A spokesman for E.ON said: “We do not have a date to go in and do that.

“It is important that we get it right.

“It is obviously taking a high degree of planning.”

The CAT digger is stuck at an angle and is almost-fully submerged every day as the tide comes in.

Its lonely predicament struck a chord with our readers, who responded to a Herald poll last month and named it ‘Moby Dig’.
