The oil platform ‘GSP Saturn’ successfully sailed into the Bosphorus Strait on Monday (February 5) after initially failing to pass under Istanbul’s Bosphorus Bridge last week.

Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency reported the oil platform, which is registered in Panama, failed to pass underneath the bridge last Wednesday (January 31) due to a technical failure.

Accompanied by boats to guide it, the platform passed meters below traffic on the bridge and continued its journey to the Romanian port of Constanta.

The semi-submersible oil platform is 52.4 metres in length, 120 metres in height and has a gross tonnage of 5235.
