There's praise for Kiwi divers involved in the Rena clean up by an international salvage and recovery firm.

In seven days, the divers have manually loaded 81 tonnes of debris from around the wreck of Rena into cages, that are then hoisted up to the surface.

Braemar Howells operations manager Mike Richards says the men have been working in difficult conditions at depths down to 30 metres, often in strong currents.
