International container shipping line Maersk says its ships have not been affected by the oil spill at Mt Maunganui’s main beach.

Stricken container ship MV Rena is leaking oil from its stranding on Astrolabe Reef at Mt Maunganui.

A spokesperson for Mearsk, which now makes a greater number of export calls out of the Port of Tauranga, says the oil spill has not affected operations to date.

The Port of Tauranga said it all normal shipping and cargo operations were operating as usual.
