Greece: REMPEC’s Mediterranean Assistance Unit provides experts

Following the sinking of the oil tanker “AGIA ZONI II” off Piraeus, on 10 September 2017, Greece has requested for assistance to the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Centre for the Mediterranean Sea (REMPEC). As a result two experts have been mobilised for a mission in Athens, Greece in the framework of the Mediterranean Assistance Unit (MAU). They will provide technical support on sunken oil assessment and removal techniques and efficient oil removal from sandy beaches. More information is available here.
