Granuaile and Celtic Rebel on-scene for boom deployment

The ILV Granuaile and Celtic Rebel have arrived on scene and have begun to deploy 200m of havey boom equipment a large oil/chemical slick outside Querrin Strand. 

 

 

As the area is part of a special area of conservation, popcorn is used to simulate the oil/chemical spill on the surface. The Shannon 1 is brought in to assist.

 

Once the boom equipment has been secured and collection area established, a number of skimmers will be deployed that will help collect the chemicals for disposal.
