Grounded ‘TS Taipei’ pumping postponed
Tuesday, 29 March 2016 16:51

Environmental protective measures to stop the freighter ‘TS Taipei’ leaking fuel oil after it grounded near Northern Taipei on March 10 have been postponed awaiting weather improvements.

The freighter split in two after grounding and fears remain that the remaining sections could capsize.  The split ruptured fuel tanks that have now leaked fuel and oil into the surrounding waters.

Local environmental authorities have begun attempts to limit the damage by pumping the remaining oil from the vessel, but have had to retreat due to adverse weather conditions.

Government agencies have sent in a 428-strong cleanup team to try and tackle the affected areas on the coast while three fishing vessels are attempting to carry out cleanup operations at sea.
