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.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
