Wheat and oil at sea

While carrying forward its development project and continuing response efforts following the Aegean Sea spill in La Coruña, Cedre provided remote and on-site assistance for two accidents which required careful handling. First, another major accident involving an oil tanker loaded in Europe, after 3 years of respite: the grounding of the Sea Empress, at the entrance to Milford Haven (Wales) ripping open its hull. Secondly, the sinking and dismantling of the cargo vessel Fénès, loaded with 2,600 tonnes of wheat for a humanitarian cause, in the Lavezzi Islands marine reserve (Southern Corsica).
