Finland's Oil Spill Response Insufficient

Current measures for oil spill prevention and response on the Gulf of Finland are insufficient, according to a report by rescue departments, the WWF, and Finland's Environmental Administration.

The organisations say Finland lacks adequate oil spill response equipment, and claim training for rescue officials is insufficient. They say proper oil spill preparation requires a response centre, additional equipment, trained personnel and more collaboration between officials.

The plan would cost the state 100 million euros annually over ten years' time.
