2015 lokaliserade Åkersbergaföretaget Ocean X Team en sjunken rysk ubåt i svenska farvatten. Efter många turer kan de också få bärga ubåten – sedan frågan utretts och Putin sagt ja.

Nu väntar vi på ja eller nej från regeringen, säger Österåkersbon Dennis Åsberg, ena halvan av skattletarföretaget Ocean X Team.

Vraket efter ubåten ”Som” Regeringskansliet / Utrikesdepartementet

Ubåten ( SOM )

Vraket efter ubåten ”Som” ligger i svenskt territorialhav. Ubåten sjönk 1916 efter en kollision med ett svenskt fartyg. Frågor om vraket efter ubåten ”Som” har beretts inom Regeringskansliet sedan 2015 i samband med att ett svenskt företag hade påträffat vraket, och sedermera skickade Ryska federationen en förfrågan om bärning till Utrikesdepartementet. Regeringskansliet (Utrikesdepartementet) beslutade den 25 maj 2020 att ge en utredare i uppdrag att bedöma förutsättningarna för bärgning av vraket efter ubåten ”Som” och för överlämning av vraket till Ryska federationen. Om bärgning inte bedöms vara möjlig eller ändamålsenlig ska utredaren beakta, beskriva och föreslå alternativ till hur vraket och förlisningsplatsen kan hanteras.

Sammanfattningsvis ser utredningen inte några hinder mot att vraket efter ”Som” bärgas och överlämnas till Ryssland. Utredningen föreslår att en internationell överenskommelse ingås med Ryssland rörande hanteringen av vraket.

Press release!

The last shipment of rare liquors for Tzar Nicholas II’s Russia, is now recovered!

A search and salvage project that started 20 years ago is now completed. It was on the 22nd October the salvage vessel ”Deepsea Worker”, arrived in Sweden with a shipload of more than 100-year old cognac and liqueur, brought up from the Swedish steamer ”s/s Kyros”!

Ocean X Team and iXplorer cooperated with the special equipped salvage vessel ”Deepsea Worker”  to be able to salvage the bottles of ”De Haartman & Co”-cognac and ”Benedictine”-liqueur (now days owned by Bacardi) from 77 meters depth between Sweden and Finland at international waters. It was 50 cases of cognac and 15 cases of liqueur that were supposed to be delivered from France to St Petersburg (former Petrograd), Russia, through neutral Sweden already in December 1916. Due to a heavy ice situation in the Sea of Bothnia (the sea between Sweden and Finland) the transport were delayed till May 1917. ”s/s Kyros” met its dramatic fate though when being stopped and controlled by the German submarine ”UC58”. The captain of the submarine decided to sink ”s/s Kyros” because that parts of the cargo were considered as contraband by the Germans. ”S/s Kyros” crew were transferred to a nearby ship and later they all returned safe to Sweden.

The wreck of ”s/s Kyros” has during the years been heavily damaged by fishing trawls and trawl boards. Several times since the first discovery back in 1999 has the wreck been cleared from nets to make it possible for divers and unmanned underwater vehicles (ROV’s) to access the wreck. 

The importance of this event cannot be overemphasized – it’s not only a find of rare cognac and liqueur but also a part of history of the former imperial Russia. 

”Bacardi, being the owner of the Bénédictine brand, a product that was created more than 500 years ago by french monks, are excited to hear about the find and are eager to learn if the product has been preserved for the duration of the stay under water, says Petra Caspolin, Marketing Manager at Bacardi in Nordics”

17TH CENTURY SHIPWRECK WINE

Christie’s is delighted to present two extraordinary 17th century bottles, the oldest we have ever brought to market.
In 2010 a wreck site was uncovered during a survey mission of the ocean floor off the coast of Germany. At a depth of 40 metres, divers discovered a decayed wreck and buried, deep in the mud in old rattan basket was found to be 14 ancient bottles. One bottle broke in the recovery and one bottle was opened and tested. The laboratory results, (detailed below) show that it had been a powerful red wine. The shape of the bottles and a thorough investigation of the wine and cork indicated that the wine was bottled between 1670 and 1690.
Prof. Gougeon (Institut Universitaire de la Vigne et du Vin / University of Burgundy) provided some results in March 2016.
Our latest results obtained in Dijon confirm the liquid being a grape based beverage due to the presence of tartaric acid. Phenolic analysis confirmed a typical old wine signature rich in tannin degradation products and together with the presence of resveratrol enables us to tell it was a strong red wine. Interestingly, besides small aliphatic acids such as lactic and acetic acid, the wine still contained some amounts of ethanol. Our colleague historian confirmed me from the chemical analysis of the glass and especially from the shape of the corked flask that the dating precisely would correspond to a period from late XVIIth century.”
The bottles are offered with a certificate from the owners who recovered the wine. The wine is extremely old, and because it is not a fortified wine, it’s drinkability is questionable, this should be approached as a lot of historical and vinous importance.
Shipwreck Wine
Offered in specially designed water-filled storage tanks. Offered with special equipment to maintain the bottles in their storage tanks.
2 bottles per lot
