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 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 in international waters. It was 50 cases of cognac and 15 cases of liqueur that were on its way from France to Saint Petersburg, Russia, 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. Interesting to know that for the final time of the shipment Saint Petersburg became Petrograd becuase of February Revolution in Russia and the abdication of Zhar Nicolas The Second. “s/s Kyros” met the dramatic fate when being stopped and controlled by the German submarine “UC58”. The captain of the submarine decided to sink “s/s Kyros” because the main cargo were considered as war goods been shipped to Russian Empire- the German enemy in WWI. “S/s Kyros” crew were transferred to a nearby ship and later they all returned safely to Sweden. The wreck of “s/s Kyros” has been heavily damaged by fishing trawls and trawl boards during the time been on the bottom of Baltic Sea. Several times since the first discovery back in 1999, the wreck been cleared from fish-nets to make it possible for divers and unmanned underwater vehicles (ROVis) to access the wreck.
