Ship Rena Oil Spill Disaster
TAURANGA, NEW ZEALAND:
by Richard Moore
of Maritime New Zealand and the New Zealand Navy we travelled out
to get some close-up pictures of the Rena. All
the oil is now off the container vessel and salvage crews are working
in very dangerous conditions to unload the more than 1300 containers
left on board. We
got out to the HMNZS Pukaki via the ship's zodiacs and it was a
huge buzz to go about 35 knots over some pretty choppy seas. Once
I work out how to put video on the site you can see some footage.
the meantime here are two new pages of photos I took from the Pukaki.
