As part of the evaluation of the anti-spillage procedures used by the Bouygues Travaux Publics company, an anti-pollution drill was held in the sea extension works area on Friday morning, April 6.

The exercise scenario was an accidental spill of hydraulic oil at sea near the Grimaldi Forum.

The adverse weather conditions required the protection of the two coves of the Larvotto beaches by means of floating dams. The purpose was to preserve the beach area as provided for by the “PolMar” plan.

On the instruction of the Directorate of Maritime Affairs (Technical Adviser on Pollution at Sea), the two dams stored at the end of the large dyke were towed on site and deployed by the Division de la Marine, Maritime and Airport Police, and the Monaco Fire Brigade Company.

Also participating in this exercise was the Port Operating Company of Monaco and Bouygues Travaux Publics.
