Part of Rena Wreck to be Removed

Date: 1/8/2013

The huge accommodation block of the Rena is to be removed says the ship’s owners and insurers.
The decision to remove the four-storey block has been made in advance of any move to apply for a resource consent to leave part of the ship on the seabed. It comes after concerns about the possibility the block would degrade or collapse and release debris that could wash up on the shoreline. The operation is planned to start in August or September.
