BERGVALL + HUDNER ISSUE STATEMENT NO. 13 ON SHETLANDS TANKER INCIDENT

 STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael S. Hudner, chief executive officer of the B+H Group, who is leading the response team, has expressed his sorrow at the destruction of the tanker MT Braer.
 He said: "She was a strong ship and put up a good fight, but was finally beaten by the appalling weather conditions."
 As darkness fell, the vessel appeared to have separated into four. Salvora Smit Tak will carry out a diving inspection, at the earliest opportunity, to investigate whether there is a possibility of recovering any remaining cargo.
 The Shetlands coastline is still being battered by strong winds and heavy swell. Mr. Hudner added that the diving inspection could not take place until the weather had moderated. It is impossible at this stage to determine whether any cargo remains on board.
