Salvors have been making good progress this week in removing containers and debris from Rena. Fifteen containers (eight yesterday and seven on Wednesday) have been removed from the aft section of Rena.

One refrigerated container which had earlier been cut up has been discharged on to the ST60.

The crane barge Smit Borneo is positioned off the port side of Rena, secured with wire ropes.

Work has been continuing this week on removing containers from the aft section of Rena. Salvors have also removed the last two refrigerated containers from the forward section of Rena.

Helicopter operations, removing cut up pieces of containers, are continuing.

Dive operations will continue around the submerged stern section of the wreck.

There are currently north east winds of around 15 knots out at the Astrolabe Reef – these are forecast to reduce through today and tomorrow.

Container and debris recovery: In total, 514 containers have been recovered from Rena by salvors and processed ashore by Braemar Howells. A further 70 containers have been recovered from land and sea by Braemar Howells teams, making the total ashore now 584.

A Braemar Howells recovery team is removing the last of the steel container pieces from Bowentown today.

70 bags of fish product have been brought ashore from Rena and will be taken to the Waikato Landfill for disposal.
More wood is being lifted from Matakana Island via helicopter today.

Two vessels are continuing sonar sweeps of the sea floor for missing containers.

Oil spill response: Oil spill response clean-up teams are working on Matakana Island and Mount Maunganui today. National On Scene Commander Mick Courtnell said only one shelly beach area on the Mount still required cleaning.

A clean-up operation will begin on Motiti Island on Monday – an oil spill response team of 16 will be deployed early Monday morning to work through to the following Saturday.

Seven penguins were released near Motiti Island today – these penguins will be observed today and tomorrow and then the wildlife team on Motiti Island will leave the island.
