Gibraltar Port opens to bunkering operations – 534/2023

By August 5, 2023 No Comments

The Captain of the Port is pleased to confirm that the Gibraltar Port is open to bunkering operations as from midday today.

Yellow flags have been raised at both Little Bay and Camp Bay. This will be constantly monitored and beachgoers are asked to report any sightings of oil or sheen to the lifeguards. Red flags may be raised again if necessary.

Booms are being replaced in Rosia Bay, whilst the coastal cleanup continues to be ramped up with low volume, high pressure washing. Vessels continue to skim in the area for free-floating sheen with sorbent booms.

The Captain of the Port takes this opportunity to thank the Port operators and the public for their understanding and cooperation throughout the oil spill response.
