ALGECIRAS (Agencies) The container ship Deneb, registered in Antigua and Barbuda, that ran aground on Saturday at the Juan Carlos I Quay in Algeciras port, has as yet not caused any environmental damage, according to sources watching the situation. Svitzer, the specialist company hired to refloat her, says it will take about a week to do so. Two of the four floating cranes needed for the operation have already arrived, another is expected today. Nevertheless, crews have been working since early Sunday morning, as have teams of environmental protection entities.
