More boxes off stranded KEA TRADER

Almost half the 756 containers on grounded KEA TRADER have now been removed.

Bringing in a specialist Sikorsky Skycrane heavy lift helicopter has enabled Lomar Shipping to make much faster progress removing containers off the KEA TRADER, which is stuck firmly on a reef off the coast of Noumea. 

Lomar began the salvage operation using barges and the ships own gear, but winter swells had generally prevented vessels from coming alongside to receive containers safely. The helicopter was brought in two weeks ago, and 373 containers have now been discharged, including 46 on Tuesday (5 September) and a further 24 today (6 September). 

The lighter swells have allowed both the helicopter and the ships’ own cranes to load directly to an adjacent barge. “Containers are now being regularly delivered ashore, in Noumea, New Caledonia, with others due in the coming days,” said Lomar in a statement.

While removing containers continues, teams from Ardent have been making preparations to re-float the vessel. “This has included divers working on side ballast tanks and tanktops.  The precise extent of damage will only become clear once Kea Trader has been re-floated, although it is expected to be considerable,” Lomar said.
