Chatham Islands – Whale Removal

In April 2012, the MV Baldur assisted DOC in removing a 35 – 40 Ton sperm whale from off the beach at Waitangi, Chatham Islands.

A 500mtr long wire cable was run ashore while the Baldur was at anchor and attached to the whale. The Baldur then towed it off the beach into the middle of the bay and then handed it over to the FV Equinox to depose of at sea.
