Asbestos Remediation mv Otapan

Asbestos Remediation mv Otapan >>

Tanker Otapan was tied up in Amsterdam from 1999 to 2006. In autumn 2006 Otapan even achieved international fame when it sailed to Turkey in order to be demolished. The Turkish authorities refused to admit the ship, when it turned out that the quantity of asbestos was much more than the stated 1000 kilos. KOOLE was given the assignment to remove 77,000 kilos of asbestos, after which the ship could be released.
