Since the collision between Hong Kong-registered bulk carrier “Sunny Horizon” and Korean-registered Liquefied Petroleum Gas carrier “DL Salvia” on 9 Sep 2012, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has worked with its partners from various agencies and the industry to clean up the spilled oil.
As of 12 Sep 2012, a total of 14 craft, 2 containment booms, oil recovery equipment such as a harbour buster, and more than 100 personnel were deployed for the clean-up efforts at sea and land.
No oil patches have been observed in the affected waters as at 1800 hrs today. MPA will continue to monitor the waters closely and carry out any necessary clean up. MPA’s patrol and emergency response craft remain deployed at the West Jurong area to deal with any oil patches that may surface.
The shoreline clean up operation along Jurong Island’s T-bund and along Tuas View Extension has also been completed. Most of the shoreline has been cleaned, with only small light stains left. The light stains will be removed tomorrow.
