MV Miner – More pollutants then expected

the CBC is reporting the scrapping of the MV Miner is running late and over budget due to higher quantities of pollutants being found. it was estimated there were 5 tons of Asbestos aboard, however crews have removed more the 30tons of the material.

also discovered was 18000 liters of fuel in a tank. After the Vessel grounded, a salvage company was retained to remove all fuel’s and oils. this discovery leads to the possibility of a tank that was added for the trip as a means to re-fuel the tug on route.

if this is the case, perhaps the towing company can be sued to recover cleanup costs.
