Save the Date – South Baltic Oil Spill Response – Table Top Exercise


WHEN: 10 am – 5 pm, THURSDAY, 8th NOVEMBER 2018

WHERE: Świnoujście, Poland (exact location to be sent out soon)

Globally, there is no country with enough resources and equipment to respond to an extremely large oil spill on its own. This is especially true when special equipment that is missing in one country can be found in a neighboring country.

The SBOIL project (South Baltic Oil spill response) started in 2016 and will run for three years. It is a continuation of the research project BioBind within which an “environmental friendly” concept was developed to respond efficiently to an oil spill at sea. In November the SBOIL project will arrange an international table top exercise together with project partners from Sweden, Germany and Poland. We also welcome local, regional and national stakeholders involved in oil spill preparedness and response from the countries around the South Baltic Sea. The exercise will focus on operational aspects of using new and so called “green technology” in oil spill response. Outcomes of the exercise will be documented and used for future improvements in relation to emergency response management. More information about hotels, location and dinner will be sent out prior to the event.
