MSC Zoe: Dutch authorities locate 238 containers
Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) and Dutch authorities have found 238 of the 281 containers that fell overboard the MSC Zoe on January 2, 2019.
Dutch public works and water management department Rijkswaterstaat said most of the containers were spread over a length of 23 miles above the Dutch municipalities Terschelling, Schiermonnikoog and east of this line.
A third party utilizing three vessels with sonar, including the MS Arca measuring and research vessel from Rijkswaterstaat, is still on the lookout for the remaining 43 missing containers.
The Dutch Coast Guard is also searching for the missing units from air.
Germany’s Central Command for Maritime Emergencies said that search efforts were being hampered by inclement weather conditions.
