Napoli Towed Away for Recycling

Tuesday, August 07, 2007
The BBC reported that salvagers are preparing to tow part of the stricken cargo ship MSC Napoli from Devon to Belfast for recycling. The damaged ship, which was beached off Sidmouth in January, was split in two after a series of explosions.

The stern of the ship remains grounded but the bow section is expected to be towed to a Belfast shipyard where it will be broken up. The bow will be towed by a coastguard tug around the Cornish coast to the Irish Sea. Tenders have been received for the disposal of the stern section which will be dismantled offshore and the metal recycled. The MSC Napoli was damaged in storms while sailing from Antwerp to South Africa. The 62,000-ton vessel was carrying about 2,300 containers, of which about 100 went overboard and 58 were washed ashore. Source: BBC
