Gibraltar Authorities make progress in cleaning up spill

The Maritime Captaincy has announced, in the last hours, considerable advances in the cleaning operations of the coast, after the oil spill that occurred earlier this week.

Cleanup crews have made significant progress in removing spilled oil from the affected coastal area. However, work was temporarily suspended due to unsafe conditions caused by high tide.

With the intention of maintaining constant control of the situation, drones have been deployed to monitor the area and controls have been carried out at the foot of the coast. Authorities have decided to resume cleanup operations, as long as conditions allow and are safe.

Regarding port operations, the Maritime Captaincy has announced that as of 6:00 p.m., they were reactivated in a limited way, since those related to the supply of fuel have not yet been authorized.

It is expected that more details on the full resumption of all port operations will be released soon, as the evolution of the situation on the coast is evaluated and the safety of maritime operations is guaranteed.

The authorities and specialized teams continue to work hard to mitigate the effects of the oil spill and fully restore activities in the affected area.
