Containers discharged by the crane barge Bigfoot 1 continue to be landed at Portland by the shuttle vessel Boa Barge 21. The discharge of MSC Napoli’s deck containers is expected to take around four weeks, Zodiac said.

Meanwhile, the SMIT salvage team is close to completing the removal of fuel from MSC Napoli. Pumping now concentrates on Tank No. 6 starboard, the last of the ship’s four main fuel tanks, Zodiac said.

The weather outlook at the scene remains favourable, with the good conditions forecast to persist until Tuesday at least, Zodiac said.
