Salvage operations continue onboard MV Kaami
Salvage operations continue onboard the cargo vessel MV Kaami after it ran aground in the Minch between Skye and Lewis last month.
A total of 160 skips worth of cargo have been taken ashore by salvage company Resolve and divers are continuing to carry out internal damage assessments.
Today (April 21), work continued to transfer cargo submerged inside the hold to another area of the ship for drying. This will be removed from the ship in the coming days.
Stephan Hennig the Secretary of State’s Representative Maritime for Salvage and Intervention, said: ‘The weather forecast continues to look favourable until at least the weekend and good progress is being made. The next stage of the salvage will focus on continuing to assess the internal damage and attempting to temporarily repair damaged sections of the ship.
