Rochefort Experiment

This anti-pollution experiment took place in Rochefort, France on December 5th, 2014.  A dynamic sweeping boom technique is used: one side attached to a small boat, and one side fixed on land. Instruments were deployed to compare this real-life scenario to the outputs of our numerical model.
Participants: EIGSI La Rochelle, Conseil Général 17, Port de Commerce de Rochefort.

Lisbon Experiment

This anti-pollution experiment for oil spill response using booms took place in Lisbon on October 14th and 15th, 2014.


Participants: Lisbon Port, Repsol terminal, MARETEC-IST, and  Falmouth Harbour Comissioners.

Falmouth Oil Spill Response Conference

Falmouth Harbour Commissioners organised an all-day Falmouth Oil Spill Response Conference in Falmouth Cornwall (UK) on May 21st 2014.

Europeans projects SPRES (Atlantic area transnational program ERDF) and ISDAMP (Civil protection mechanism DG-ECHO) help to share best practices for oil-spill responders and scientific spill response tools for academics and researchers.

Speakers presentations can be viewed at: Falmouth Oil Spill Response Conference

This event was held at the same time as an anti-pollution exercise carried out in Falmouth Harbour waters. Photos and videos of the boom deployment and installation are available.
