    Exercise Polex 2013

    June 25th a Polex exercise was carried out near the windmill farm C-Power. This anti-pollution exercise aimed at testing and training the coordinated deployment of dispersants in and around the windmill farms. Dispersants are chemical products, more in particular, detergents that are specifically used for combating oil at sea. By spraying dispersants onto the oil, the natural dispersion of an oil slick (wave energy resulting in the breaking down of the oil slick into tiny droplets which are released into the water column and are thus diluted) can be accelerated greatly.
