Oil pollution after fire must be investigated

Oil pollution after fire must be investigated

The violent fire that hit Avista Oil's refinery at Kalundborg Harbor last Monday may have caused oil pollution. Kalundborg Municipality has a "reasonable suspicion" that the waste water may have contained oil residues that can be sown into the soil around the refinery.

The municipality has therefore announced an inquiry to Avista Oil, says Ingeniøren.
"We have a reasoned suspicion that when water is running out of a grass area and in areas that are not fully sealed, there will be a risk of pollution with oil from the water that has been eroded," says Case Manager Ole Winter Christensen from Kalundborg Municipality to Ingeniøren.

If there are oil residues, Avista Oil must clean the contaminated areas and restore the original state of the earth.

According to the environmental report that has been prepared after the fire, the water masses from the extinguishing work have not remarkably polluted the harbor basin.
The oil residue, which ended in the harbor with the extinguishing water, has been dammed with flood barriers, writes Ingeniøren.
