You can see photos of this here, including the clean up of these containers which is already in full swing.

I intend to photograph the Msc Napoli every week until its gone. If you require images for an editorial or you would like to buy prints of Msc Napoli, send me an email to dan.bryan@virgin.net

Cheers

MSC Napoli - Situation update 27/03/07
Seaward
The Environment Group assigned to the recovery of the MSC Napoli has confirmed that operations to remove containers from the vessel is now well over half way. 43% of the original 2,318 containers are left, and the removal is going well.

853 containers have been removed from the deck; so far 353 containers have been removed from below deck - this operation is continuing; 88 containers have been recovered from the sea and the shoreline; 26 containers are submerged (some located, some remain un-located, but the containers have been identified so contents are known to the authorities); there are 998 containers remaining below deck.

The crane barge, Big Foot, which is removing the containers from the vessel, now needs to be modified to enable it to lift heavier containers with a longer reach. Many of the containers are now heavier having become waterlogged. The removal operation will be suspended in the next few days to allow for the necessary modifications to Big Foot.

Clean containers (checked and processed) have been transferred onward from Portland Port on the MSC Grace to Le Havre, the nearest large container port that can accommodate the cargo.

The MSC Napoli remains stable with no change to its condition.

The skimming of oil from the engine room and Number 6 Hold continues.

The Centre for Fisheries and Aquaculture Science and the Environment Agency are studying water samples taken from the vessel's hold.

Portland Port recovery teams continue to process the latest arrival of containers from the MSC Napoli.

Divers were unable to work over the weekend due to the height of the swell.

The sonar vessels are continuing their explorations to locate submerged containers.

The authorities have issued an invitation to tender for the removal of the wreck, with a closing date of the 4th April.
