Marine Pollution Control Off-Loads New Carissa

Friday, August 27, 1999
Detroit-based Marine Pollution Control Corp. (MPC), aided in unloading oil from New Carissa, a Japanese-owned wood chip carrier that ran aground in Coos Bay, Ore. MPC was called in because of its experience in pumping viscous petroleum products, including coal tar and asphalt, and in heating oils in order to make them easier to pump. MPC also has extensive experience in working in dangerous, unstable conditions. While only 400 ft. offshore, New Carissa was being rocked by winds and waves. The world-renowned company is best known for helping to clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill after lightering the cargo remaining onboard after running aground on Bligh Reef. MPC also responded in the Persian Gulf when Iraq dumped millions of gallons of oil into the sea during the Gulf War.
