MSC Napoli may head for Lyme Bay

SOUTHAMPTON 19 January – The cracked container ship MSC Napoli may be towed to Lyme Bay, off the UK’s south coast, and contracted salvor Smit International is understood to be mobilizing maritime salvage equipment from the Netherlands. The 4,700-teu Napoli is currently making its way up the English Channel under tow by the French tug Abeille Bourbon, with escort from the UK tug Anglian Princess. There are 2,394 containers on board, some carrying industrial and agricultural chemicals. Robin Middleton, the UK Secretary of State’s Representative for Salvage and Intervention said he has been working with the French government and salvors “to carry out a risk assessment of the various options available to us”. The most favourable option is to tow the vessel to a sheltered location where the salvage operation to remove the containers or make out temporary repairs can be carried out. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency Counter Pollution and Response branch will be working with the Salvage Consortium and other agencies to minimise any risk of pollution or damage to the environment.
