The Russian submarine SOM compass

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.
