Kiani Sato Oil Spill

posted on 03-06-2016

A cargo ship headed for the Turkish Gabon spilled more than 15 tons of fuel into the sea in August 2013, near the Nature Reserve Goukamma at Buffels Bay near Knysna. Xtreme Projects assisted in the spill clean up to help lessen the damaging effect the oil spill had on the environment. The Xtreme team began cleanup operations where the coasts had been reached by the fuel and the mouth of the river was blocked with sandbags. They also contained the spills with booms and cloths. If you would like to read more on the Kiani Santo oil spill you can find more information here: article 1 and article 2.
