MAVI DENIZ is located in Istanbul, Turkey, has response teams on permanent standby 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Oil Spill Response on land and shoreline
On Land and shoreline, oil spills slow damage to the environment. Spills on land have a higher risk of directly impacting human activities or resources associated with social or economic activities.
(Shoreline + Inland) Oil Spill Response teams are trained to the highest industry standards and regularly exercise. (Shoreline + Inland) The Oil Spill Response team can respond to the on-land and pipeline oil spill from a minor domestic oil spill to major industrial incidents, such as pipeline oil spills, jet fuel, and industrial oil storage spills.
For shoreline cleanup, we use natural recovery, manual removal, flooding or washing, use of vacuums, the amphibious machine, oil skimmer, skimming vessel, oil boom, mechanical removal, tilling and aeration, sediment reworking or surf washing, and the use of sorbents or chemical cleaning agents.
Mavi Deniz provides Tier1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 stand-by support to ports, marina, shipyard, refinery, oil companies, pipelines, oil/gas exploration, industry, and production companies. Our equipment is also available for hiring as Tier 1 or Tier 2 kits or flexibly to supplement the client’s existing inventory, requirements for short or long periods depending on the operations. All our equipment is certified by B.V. or Equivalent and well maintained according to an internal maintenance procedure.
The shoreline’s basic structure and the size of the material present are the most critical factors in terms of oil spill cleanup. There
are many types of shorelines, all of which are classified in sensitivity to oil spills and cleanup ease. Some types are bedrock, human-made solid structures, boulder beaches, pebble-cobble, mixed sand-gravel beaches, sand beaches, tidal sand flats, mud tidal flats, marshes, peat, and low-lying tundra, and mangrove.
When oil reaches the shoreline, we may require considerable effort to clean the affected areas. Most ship-source oil spills occur close to the coast and, as a result, many spills result in contamination of shorelines. Oil reaching standing on the shore can cause significant environmental and economic impacts. It may also largely determine the political and public perception of the incident’s scale and the over costs.
