The India Coast Guard has recovered most of the fuel oil from an earlier spill at Ennore port, it told local media on Wednesday.
The oil/chemical tanker MT Coral Stars spilled about 2 metric tonnes (mt) of fuel oil at the Marine Liquid Terminal 1 on Sunday morning due to a ruptured oil transfer hose.
The oil spill recovery vessel Samudra Paheredar and five other coast guard vessels were involved in the cleanup operations.
"The specialized equipment on board ICGS Samudra Paheredar proved critical for recovering the thick oil mousse and preventing it from reaching the shores,” said a Coast Guard statement, as quoted by NDTV.
“About five tonnes of viscous mousse has been recovered using weir, disc, brush skimmers and manual mopping using absorbents.”
