Sur demande du préfet maritime de l'Atlantique, la CAPINAV (capacité nationale de renfort pour les interventions à bord des navires de la sécurité civile) est venue renforcer les équipes d'intervention pré-positionnées à Brest et celles d'expertise au CTC. Un avion de surveillance maritime Falcon 50 de la marine nationale a aussi décollé de la base de Lann-Bihoué pour se rendre sur place tout comme un hélicoptère Caïman. Finalement, "à 15h26" ce mardi, "le navire italien Grande America a coulé par 4600 mètres de fond, à environ 180 nautiques (333 km) à l'ouest des côtes françaises", a annoncé la préfecture maritime. Ce mardi, la préfecture maritime de Brest indique sur son site que le navire a coulé aux alentours de 15h30. "Le navire de commerce italien transportait des voitures et autres véhicules dans ses garages et des conteneurs sur ses ponts supérieurs", précise France 3 Bretagne.

Nous allons envisager des moyens de lutte anti-pollution, il y a un risque et il ne faut pas le nierFrançois de Rugy, ministre de la Transition écologique et solidaire. Nous identifions le contenu exact de la cargaison, pour savoir la nature des produits contenus dans les conteneurs dont certains sont tombé à l'eau. "Nous allons voir s'il faut mobiliser des moyens sous-marins antipollution", a précisé le ministre. Cet accident, qui a été signalé dimanche vers 20 heures au Centre régional opérationnel de surveillance et de sauvetage (CROSS) d'Etel, n'a fait aucune victime puisque les 27 passagers à bord avaient été évacués dès dimanche soir.

Le navire a déclaré un incendie à son bord alors qu'il se trouvait à environ 263 kilomètres au sud-ouest de la pointe de Penmarc'h (sud Finistère). Vers minuit, le commandant a alerté les autorités maritimes que l'incendie, initialement maîtrisé, avait repris et que plusieurs conteneurs étaient en feu.

Le violent incendie qui sévit à bord du navire italien Grande America est toujours en cours.

Ils ont été récupérés vers 4 heures du matin par la frégate britannique HMS Argyll qui avait été déroutée sur zone. Le navire présente une inclinaison sur son côté droit qui s'aggrave au fil du temps.

"Le navire, construit en 1997, a été détenu en 2010 pour 35 déficiences dans le port de Tilbury au Royaume-Uni", a assuré lundi dans un communiqué l'association écologiste Robin des Bois, ajoutant que depuis "d'autres déficiences sont régulièrement relevées par les inspecteurs de sécurité maritime à Hambourg et à Anvers".
