Tricolor: Oil leakage stopped, third lift to commence today

During the weekend, some oil spillage occurred during the fifth cutting operation of the TRICOLOR. The leakage has now stopped. When the oil spillage first occurred last Sunday, the oil pollution vessel ‘Union Beaver’ immediately commenced with cleaning up at the salvage site. Dutch coastguard vessels ‘Arca’, ‘Frans Naerenbout’ and ‘Rotterdam’ participated in the second tier of the cleanup.
