As part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the RAMOGE cross-border agreement, an anti-pollution exercise was conducted on April 27 to demonstrate and maintain the expertise of the three signatory states, the Principality of Monaco, France and Italy…

The scenario involved a ‘collision’ off Menton between two ships, resulting in an oil spill, the activation of crisis centres in the three countries and the initiation of the RAMOGEPOL emergency plan. Each national authority was able to measure the effectiveness of its own implementation, and in particular coordination with CEPPOL, the oil-spillage authorities. More info:

Exercice de lutte antipollution RAMOGEPOL 2016

Dans le cadre de la célébration du 40e anniversaire de l’Accord RAMOGE, un exercice antipollution a été réalisé en mer le 27 avril 2016. Il visait à démontrer et entretenir le savoir-faire des trois Etats signataires, la Principauté de Monaco, la France et l’Italie.

Le scénario prévoyait une collision au large de Menton entre deux navires, entraînant un déversement d’hydrocarbures, l’activation des centres de crise des trois pays et le déclenchement du plan RAMOGEPOL. Chaque autorité nationale a pu ainsi mesurer la mise en place de ses propres moyens et la coordination avec le Centre d’Expertise Pratique de Lutte Antipollution (CEPPOL).
