The favourable weather conditions enable those conducting pollution cleaning operations off the coast of France, where the ill-fated Grande America sank a week ago. In the meantime, the Atlantic Maritime Prefecture published an inventory of the ship’s cargo according to which, Grande America was transporting 1.050 tonnes of dangerous goods.
After the initial confirmation of oil spill coming from Grande America’s sinking, French authorities have sighted another oil slick originating from the sunken RoRo in the Bay of Biscay. The French Navy and Spain’s maritime search and rescue agency revealed that there is a third oil spill in the area of the incident, covering an area of about 5 km2.
