MSC NAPOLI “OIL SPILL”
BUNKER industry news service BunkerWorld has reported that there was an oil leak from the grounded container ship MSC Napoli last Sunday. This report however drew a puzzled response from the a Maritime and Coastguard Agency spokesman who pointed out the ship's heavy oil and diesel bunkers had been recovered weeks ago.
Last week saw the lifting off of the final container from the vessel. A decision on how to deal with the wreck is likely to be taken in the next couple of weeks. The ship could be refloated for, most probably, demolition elsewhere or it could be dismantled in situ.
