Десятилетиями о местонахождении субмарины ничего не было известно. Водолазы обнаружили «Сом» только в прошлом году, а сейчас на место трагедии прибыли потомки командира легендарного экипажа. Репортаж Игоря Максименко: (см. видео)

The ceremony in Swedish water, tok place exactly 100 years after it sunk in 1916-05-23

A ceremony were held off the coastal town of Grisslehamn in Sweden, on the 23 May. It was on the day exactly 100 years since the Russian submarine “SOM” collided with the Swedish steamer “Ångermanland”, and sunk with all 18 crew members still onboard. The Commander of the submarine’s grand grand children attended the ceremony. Konstantin Buguruev, Olga and Lyuba thrown 18 lilly-flowers in the water while all 18 crew’s name were read out loud. (Grisslehamn, Sweden, 2016-05-23)

SOM was found by Ocean X Team and I-Eplorer in the summer of 2015

The Russian submarine SOM compass

 22IMG_4587

Dennis and Peter with the compass from the Russian submarine SOM (former the Holland 1 ”Fulton”). SOM sunk the 23 May 1916 after a collision with a Swedish mail steamer.

Rasmus Ravensborg dive team made the salvage effort of the compass from 88 meters depth.

The diver Martin Kindvig succeeded to take ultrasonic thickness measurements of the submarine’s hull, much thanks to Cygnus Instruments ultrasonic gauge; DIVE.

Next step is to convince the Russian authorities to cooperate with us since both ”sides” want the same thing; salvage the submarine, take care of the remaines of the 18 submariners and make sure they will get their final rest in Russian soil, and then bring the submarine to Russia.

For information, the compass is now handed over to the police to be stored under their responsibility, with the maritime musuem supervision.

The expedition was organized by Ocean X Team in cooperation with Ixplorer.

Contributors who sponsored this expedition: Cygnus Instruments, Ocean Modules, Paragon boats, Nimbus boats, Marczak Film and Björnkläder.

Burned organic material

Burned organic material on Baltic anomaly rock sample

Preliminary lab tests made by different experts at the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Institute of Archaeology in the Tel-Aviv University (Micromorphology of Archaeological Sediments and Infrared Spectroscopy) shows that a piece of basalt rock that was recovered from the circular shaped anomaly in the Baltic Sea has burned organic material on it. Further analyzes will hopefully show what kind of material it might be, and even try to date it.

Last expedition 2012

The Ocean X Team went on their last expedition 8-14 September. The weather was too bad to be able to carry through any of the planed actions at the circle anomaly. The time at sea were spent on searching wrecks instead. Despite the rough sea the team managed to survey an area of 28 Km² of the sea floor. The team came across some interesting hitswhich have to wait till next year before the team will be able to investigate closer what they might have found this time.

Further investigation of the circle anomaly is still desirable since more questions have risen instead of being answered at the expeditions this summer, 2012.

The s/s Astrid expedition

Astrid

During one of Ocean X Team’s expeditions in the summer of 2012 the wreck of s/s Astrid was found in international waters. Astrid was built in 1872 in England as the yacht Saga, she changed owner a few times before ending up in Sweden to serve as a freighter. She was 34 meters long and 6.5 meters wide and was propelled by a 150 HP steam engine. It was during a trip between Stockholm and Rauma in Finland on 11 September 1916 thatAstrid finally met her final fate. She was discovered by the German submarine U 22 (which incidentally was the same sub that sunk the ship Jönköping which carried the famous champagne load, salvaged in 1997/98). Astrid was stopped by U 22 and the German captain decided after been reading the freight documents that Astrid brought contraband in her cargo and therefore they had to sink her. After Astrid’s crew, which consisted of 10 men and two women, had entered the two life rafts the submarine opened fire with its deck gun. 16 shells were fired in total and after the first shell the boiler blow into the air with the result that the superstructure was razed completely. Fire broke out and at 13:40 in the afternoon she sunk and would not been seen again for 96 years. Astrid’s life rafts with her crew were towed towards the Finnish coast by U 22. They were however left some 10 nautical miles off the Finnish coast and had to row the final distance before reaching land.

Dives has been performed with both divers and robots to a depth between 65-58 meters. Astrid is very badly damaged due to the fire and the damages caused by the gun fire. Among other things, most of the bottles of port wine that was in her hold were shattered and the divers had to dig through broken glass to find the rare whole bottles. Despite this, the Ocean X Team’s expedition could shoot some unique pictures and video sequences of a long-forgotten ship.
