Two of the five containers that cargo ship Baltic Tern lost over Ameland last week have been salvaged.
According to Rijkswaterstaat, it seems that the containers, which contained used fats, oils and acetone, have not started to leak.
The cargo ship lost five containers about 30 kilometers north of Ameland on Wednesday.
In addition to the two salvaged tank containers, it also lost three freight containers.
These containers, two of which are filled with paper fibers and one with wooden pallets, are still missing.
According to Rijkswaterstaat, the recovery company appointed by the shipping company is still looking for the three containers.
Various investigative methods are used to try to find out where they have been driven.
The Baltic Tern is now in the port of Rotterdam.
The 162-meter-long container ship sails under the flag of Rotterdam and came to the port of Rotterdam via German waters.
The turbulent weather was probably the cause of the cargo loss.
