After the Riverdance was beached, the main priorities, according to BBC reports from February, included stabilizing the structure (from listing) and removing its oil. Holes were drilled through the ship’s hull (called “hot tapping”) and oil was removed and taken by tanker away from the site. It was originally thought that the ship could be refl oated and possibly repaired, but by March, these hopes were abandoned and it was decided that the ship needed to be dismantled on-site.
