A rescue exercise, led by the Division of Maritime and Airport Police (DPMA), assisted by the Fire Brigade, which also involved the Department of Maritime Affairs (DAM) and Bouygues Public Works, took place aboard the ship ‘Simon Stevin’ in the offshore land extension zone in Portier Cove on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 18.

The scenario involved the evacuation of an injured sailor in the engine room of the ship. With the DPMA using the boat ‘La Vigilante’, the Fire Brigade treated the victim on the spot and then evacuated him to land aboard the tugboat ‘Shoalbuster’, made available by Bouygues Travaux Publics.

The ‘Simon Stevin’ is involved in the building of the embankment to which will be moored the giant caissons of the land reclamation project.
