TEPSA participates in the first chemical spillage simulation in the Port of Barcelona

Last January 14th, TEPSA took part in the first simulation of a spillage of chemical substances into the port waters of the Port of Barcelona.
The Muelle de la Energía was the stage for a simulation that outlined the spillage of a solvent product, while the chemical tanker White Lady, docked at TEPSA terminal, was being unloaded. This is the first exercise with this kind of product carried out in the Port of Barcelona, because until then, only carried out simulations with hydrocarbons. The drill involved the activation of the Port of Barcelona and TEPSA’s Internal Maritime Plan, as well as the Self-Protection Plan at alert stage, and all the response resources contemplated in the abovementioned plans were mobilised.
