Smit begins salvage work on Napoli

 LYME BAY, UK 23 January – Netherlands-based Smit Salvage has started work to remove bunkers and containers from the stricken MSC Napoli. The company has signed a Lloyd's Open Form salvage agreement and SCOPIC has been invoked. The 5,000-dwt tanker Forth Fisher arrived this morning to take the 3,600 tonnes of bunker fuel pumped from the Napoli's tanks. Salvors now believe the oil will flow through the pipelines and pumping will begin today from the fuel tanks, which remain intact. Meanwhile the salvage work vessel Union Beaver is also at the scene to provide a base for salvage equipment and a diving team. A spokesman today confirmed that 103 containers are no longer on the Napoli, of which 76 have been recovered or located pending recovery. A total of 161 IMO containers are on board, but all are reported to be safe and secure. Work to remove the containers will focus on those in areas where the ship is showing most signs of stress. Two large barges are to be brought to the scene, a 135-m, two-crane barge from Rotterdam and a smaller vessel from Rouen. Boxes will be lifted from the Napoli onto the larger barge, then transferred to the smaller barge for shipment to an as-yet-undetermined shore location. Discharge is expected to begin at the weekend. The salvage team say the site is protected from the northerly winds by the nearby cliffs, and the forecast is for a favourable weather window for the short-term.
