Rubis oil spill training exercise

RUBiS Energy Bermuda Ltd. announced today that they will be conducting a Tier 1 Oil Spill Booming training exercise in conjunction with the Royal Bermuda Regiment on Wednesday October 17, 2018.

Graham Redford, Managing Director of RUBiS explained: “The aim of this exercise is to test all functions of our internal RUBiS Oil Spill Response Management System, along with external training for deploying oil spill booming equipment.

A robust exercise and drill programme provides RUBiS' response and emergency management teams with the opportunity to practice skills that will be required in an emergency, and to work together closely and develop working relationships with key stakeholders such as the Royal Bermuda Regiment. This exercise will focus on developing all of the stakeholders' ability to deploy Tier 1 equipment in a safe and effective way, and will bring together the key personnel likely to be involved in a real incident.

As the leader in the local fuel industry, helping protect the environment is a fundamental responsibility of RUBiS, and one we take very seriously. This exercise is part of our continued commitment towards oil spill and emergency response preparedness, and one of the most effective ways of assessing response plans and procedures, determining the readiness of responders, clarifying roles and responsibilities, promoting awareness of potential incidents and preparing for real spill events.”

Mr. Redford concluded: “The safety, health and security of everyone we work with is of paramount importance to us. As such, we do ask that the boating public stay a safe distance from the exercises which, dependent on the weather, will be held in the South Basin of the Royal Naval Dockyard.”
