  • An empirically tractable model of optimal oil spills prevention in Russian sea harbours

    Based on previous theoretical work by Gottinger (1997, 1998), we propose a simple model of optimal monitoring of oil-related activities in harbour areas that is suitable for empirical estimation within the Russian— Ukrainian context, in spite of the poor availability of data in these countries. Specifically, the model indicates how to best allocate at the steady state a given monitoring budget ...

  • Cardiff Harbour Authority, UK

    The regeneration of Cardiff Bay created a complementary development of housing, leisure, business and commerce - however they had a problem. Debris, rubbish and invasive aquatic weed was entering the bay from two rivers (approx 500 hectres water space). Cardiff Harbour Authority launched a competitive tender for a range of equipment to undertake a wide range of environmental responsibilities. ...


  • Empirical data and optimal monitoring policies: the case of four Russian sea harbours

    In this paper, we describe the present state of empirical information about oil spills and oil monitoring activities in Russian harbours. We explain how we gathered, organised, and estimated the data needed to run the monitoring efforts optimisation model of Deissenberg et al. (2001). We present, analyse, and discuss the results of the optimisations carried out with this model on the basis of the ...

  • Response to Small-Scale Pollution in Ports and Harbours - Operational Guide

    Many ports, harbours and marinas are relatively poorly equipped to respond to small spills which may occur on land or on jetties or piers and pollute their channels and basins. River ports, military ports and waterways also present similar risks. Response means are often limited and the knowledge of efficient techniques to combat such pollution incidents could often be improved. This guide aims ...

  • Trelleborg Harbour Marine helps moor vessels safely at LNG terminals

    Trelleborg Harbour Marine helps moor vessels safely at LNG terminalsSafety is the priority at LNG terminals, which are growing in number inline with an increased demand for the fuel. Like many fuels, LNG is potentially hazardous and to help reduce the possibility of an incident during berthing or when a vessel is alongside a jetty, integrated mooring systems are becoming standard specification. ...


  • Offshore oil spill clean up case study

    In the event of a major incident occurring offshore, for example a tanker casualty running aground or breaking up for any reason, it is of paramount importance to deploy emergency response to protect and save human life. Once this has been done an assessment of the casualty should be made on whether it is possible to salvage the vessel and its contents and to assess the type and amount of oil ...

  • Position Brief on oil and gas development of the Arctic

    Background The Arctic Circle encompasses roughly 6% of the earth’s surface. Wetlands make up about 60% of the total Arctic land mass and are the predominant ecosystem, however they are not well defined or understood. Arctic wetlands provide a wide range of ecosystem services such as the maintenance of permafrost, hydrology and water quality. Arctic wetlands have the highest ...

  • New Zealand enhances response capability

    The partnership between Maritime New Zealand and DESMI Ro-Clean dates more than 20 years. At that time DESMI Ro-Clean supplied RO-BOOM1500 and Weir Skimmers into New Zealand for their National Oil Spill Response, all of this equipment is still in good operational condition. June 2015 Maritime New Zealand took delivery of two SpeedSweep1500 systems to enhance their response capability with the ...
