OS35 Update: Lifting Operations to Commence – 375/2023

By June 9, 2023 No Comments

The Captain of the Port has confirmed that due to the improved weather conditions on the Eastside, lifting operations on the OS35 will commence tomorrow, Saturday 10th June.

In preparation, and in line with the precautionary measures that form part of the robust Oil Spill response plans, booms are currently being deployed in various areas along Gibraltar’s eastern coastline.

These booms are crucial to the mitigation of any eventual release of oil during the lifting operations, and the public are urged to maintain a distance and refrain from any interference which may damage the booms or compromise their integrity.

Members of the public are reminded of the 600m exclusion zone around the site of the wreck, which is place for the safe continuation of the operations.
