The Swedish Coast Guard Monday started operations to block a marine passageway between the mainland and Huvudskär just south of the lighthouse Olsklabb due to a low sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) bunker spill originating from the beached Makassar Highway, it says.
"The barrier is for protecting the public and creating job comfort for the staff in place," says rescue leader Mattias Heneborn.
The ro-ro vessel Makassar Highway was beached on 21 July; to date, about 7,000 litres of LSFO have been recovered from the spill.
The coast guard intends to clean the vessel from oil and inspect its hull before towing the Makassar Highway into port.
The cancellation will remain valid until otherwise notified; as long as the area is locked, units from the coast guard will be in place.
