Oil spill: The environment was lucky

Oil spill: The environment was lucky

20-02-2017 10:00:00


The container ship Victoria was towed to a shipyard in Odense yesterday afternoon without spilling any more olie. The grounding a week ago could have ended much worse.

The cold water helped to spare the environment from extensive oil pollution from the container ship Victoria, which ran aground north of Fynshoved on Friday last week.

The water temperature of 2 degrees caused the oil to solidify, so the spill from the 50-meter-long crack in the hull was limited.

"It could have been much worse," said Commander Jens K. Jensen in this video showing how the Navy fought the oil spill.
