Navigation in Parana River Restored
Navigation in the Parana River was temporarily interrupted due to an fuel spill after a collision between two vessels at km 285 (near Sab Pedro) on Saturday, 13 December.
One of the vessels suffered damage on its fuel tank causing fuel spill, prompting the local authority to suspend upstream/downstream navigation. Navigation was restored in the early morning of Sunday 14 December.
The damaged vessel received tugboat assistance and oil spill barriers were installed.
Technical inspections of both vessels involved in the collision are being conducted.
