BP Training Exercise Hosted by Estate

The deployment of oil collection and deflection booms

This month Hopetoun was delighted to welcome a large team from BP for a fascinating training exercise on the Estate.

This training exercise was for local BP contractors who would be used in any event of a pollution incident. One of the pre-identified response sites which could be impacted by a pipeline spill is located here at Hopetoun.

web-3The exercise involved the deployment of several oil deflection and collection booms plus training sessions for oil skimmers. At no point was any oil put into the burn.

It was a very interesting exercise to witness and we are glad we could assist on this occasion. Hopefully we won’t need to see the team again unless it’s just for training!
