    SUBJECT - On behalf of its client, Canadian Coast Guard (CCG),
    Atlantic Region, Public Works and Government Services Canada
    (PWGSC) is soliciting information from experienced
    Salvage/Offshore contractors regarding an assessment on the
    wreck - General Cargo Vessel - Manolis L.  The assessment
    project will potentially be undertaken in 2016, beginning as
    soon as  operationally feasible, bearing in mind the potentially
    inclement weather conditions the north east coast of
    Newfoundland and Labrador normally encounters throughout the
    fall and winter months.
    BACKGROUND - On 17th January 1985, the general cargo vessel
    "MANOLIS L" was on voyage from Botwood, Newfoundland and
    Labrador (NL), loaded with 2,990 tonnes of newsprint.  She ran
    aground and sank in an area known as Blow Hard Rock, Notre Dame
    Bay, Newfoundland in a water depth of about 70 meters.
    For 28 years the wreck lay dormant on the seabed, but in April
    2013 oil (Bunker C) was reported on sea birds and on the
    shoreline in the Change Island area.  CCG conducted an
    assessment and identified the wreck of "MANOLIS L" as the source
    of the oil.
    A more indepth BACKGROUND is incorporated in the RFI document
