The cleaning up of the oil spill following the collision between Hong Kong-registered bulk carrier “Sunny Horizon” and Korean-registered Liquefied Petroleum Gas carrier “DL Salvia” continued today.
As at 1700hrs, Singapore’s waters around the affected area are generally clean, with only patches of sheen sighted near the Jurong Island T-bund and Tuas View Extension. The sea-based clean up operation continues, with a deployment of 7 craft, a harbour buster and 2 containment booms.
MPA continues working with JTC Corporation and the National Environment Agency on the land-based clean up efforts. The rock bund and lagoon cleaning up operation at Sultan Shoal Island has been completed.
Vessel traffic in the Port of Singapore and port operations remain unaffected.
Members of the public can contact MPA’s 24-hours Marine Safety Control Centre at 6325 2489 to report any sighting of oil slick in our waters or coastlines.
