Oil cleanup in the Wadden Sea

BDS Harlingen is regularly in action on the Wadden Sea. Oil is of course extremely undesirable and dangerous for plants and animals in this vulnerable nature reserve.

Although it is unlikely that the Wadden Sea will suffer a large oil spill, the damage if it did occur would be disastrous for this unique area. As such, the Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management regularly organises practises and BDS Harlingen is one of the partners that plays a role. In September 2018, BDS took part in a massive practice cleanup near the island of Schiermonnikoog, providing the large equipment for the practice.

Wadcrawler for inaccessible areas

The wadcrawler was developed and produced in-house. This amphibious vehicle is able to clean up oil spillages in otherwise inaccessible areas.
