Cargo ship grounding

In this fifth year of existence, Cedre handled a budget of 15.6 million Francs, including contributions in kind, with a staff of 27. It was called upon, like the year before, for some forty incidents, at sea and in fresh waters. It took part in a working group on the neutralisation of potentially polluting wrecks. It produced an inventory and a catalogue of response means for the European Commission as part of the Community Information System. After the Cypriot cargo ship Hydo hit the cliffs at the Pointe de Pen-Hir (Finistère) on 2nd September and broke up, Cedre took part in surveying the wreck and subsequently in the choice of techniques and companies for pumping out the bunker tanks.
