Training course for the Italian Coast Guard in Trieste, Italy

Jun 15, 2023

ATRAC held second training course within the ‘NAMIRS’ project from the 12th to the 14th of June 2023 in Trieste, Italy. This course was focused on At-sea Response and was developed based on IMO OPRC Tier 2 training courses. The program was made by ATRAC and approved by other project partners. Attendees of this course were all members of the Italian Coast Guard (Guardia Costeria) and the course was held on the Harbour Masters Office premises. The first two days of this course were dedicated to the theoretical part, whereas the third day was meant for a ‘Table-top’ exercise. Attendees were given an oil spill scenario in which they had to use given resources to put together an organized response. In this scenario, a tanker vessel was on its way to the SIOT terminal in Trieste, and due to an explosion on the vessel, an oil spill happened west of the city of Umag, Croatia. The training course was finished with a discussion about the ‘Table-top’ exercise.
