Cargo removal operations nearly complete on MV Kaami


Salvage operations are continuing onboard the cargo vessel MV Kaami after it ran aground in the Minch between Skye and Lewis last month.

A further 24 skips containing water-logged cargo material have been removed from the ship over the last two days by salvage company Resolve.


A total of 184 skips worth of cargo and water-logged cargo material have now been removed from the vessel and it’s hoped that the cargo removal operation will be finished tomorrow

Less than three percent of the cargo material is likely to remain on board after tomorrow and will remain on board the ship. Operations are now mainly focussing on completing repairs and making the ship watertight prior to re-floating.
