The Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management Rijkswaterstaat and Geneva-based shipping giant MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company) have located a total of 238 out of the 281 containers that were lost overboard the mega container ship ‘MSC Zoe’ last week.
MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company announced that it will pay the full costs of the clean-up of the 2 January MSC Zoe container spill. The company will continue searching the sea for the containers which fell overboard, ‘until the last one is found’.
The Dutch Government decided to deploy troops in order to help in the clean up operation for the over 200 containers that fell from the MSC Zoe containership on January 2. Relevant authorities are warning people not to touch the containers, as some of them contain dangerous chemical substances.
