OBERON oil spill cleanup operation to finish within the week

文字-A A +A

On the 18th February the Thai registered OBERON ran aground near the outlying island of Penghu spilling a large amount of crude oil. The oil spill mainly affected the coastal areas of Houliao in Baisha Township and the nearby areas of Xiaomen and Hejie in Xiyu Township. Day after day, workers battled to clean up the oil from the beach and by 22nd February 89 tons of polluted material had been amassed. The emergency cleanup groups have met daily in order to clearly understand the situation and implement the swiftest method to clean the oil as well as handle the legal claim against the shipping company. “The spill situation is under control.

We have the Dept. of Environmental Protection using excavators to clean up badly affected sand, and a large team is using oil-absorbent cloths to clean the oil from rocks. We have 75 coastguard officers on the ground at Hejie and a further 220 at Xiaomen”, said Guo Yi-cheng, from the 72 Battalion Coastguard in charge of the emergency cleanup operation. To date, over 1000 people have already worked in the cleanup operation and the County Government Environmental Protection Dept., in accordance with marine shipping laws, has fined the shipping company 1.5 million NT dollars. A compensation claim will be lodged with the company once the final cost in losses and injury are calculated.
