The MV Solomon Trader got stuck on a reef on Rennell Island and began leaking oil. The Maritime Executive reported that salvors had removed 230 tonnes of bunkers out of an estimated 600 tonnes on board. However, the existing spill is worse than it previously estimated, according to shipowner King Trader and its insurer Korea P&I.
