What happens in case of emergencies ?

Hazard precaution:

In spite of the intense active safety you must be prepared for an emergency. For this reason, MERO has set up an oil spill alert and action plan, which contains all immediate measures in case of a hazard:

  • alarming of allocated fire brigades and official task forces
  • alarming of MERO-staff and contractors
  • tasks and measures of all task forces

In order that the fire brigades can do their tasks, MERO has prepared and equipped 97 oil barriers in all flowing waters crossed by the pipeline.

Further oil spill-fighting equipment is stored at various fire brigades.

Alarming and cooperation of the task forces is regularly exercised.
