A clean-up operation in Portier Cove dealt with a leak of hydraulic fluid on Monday, March 26. The spill was the result of a technical problem aboard the vessel Minar Sinan, which was working on the land extension in Portier. Part of the oil spread to the beach at Larvotto.

The Jan De Nul company, owner of the ship, deployed absorbent rods while waiting for additional resources that enabled the oil to be pumped to the surface.
There was only a limited impact on swimming. The Directorate of Maritime Affairs and the Maritime Police are closely following the situation.
