ANTWERP : The clean-up operations of ships and quay walls are over at Deurganckdok at the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, after the recent oil spill.

All vessels involved in the incident and contaminated have left the Deurganckdok, according to the port authority.

“The quay walls are fully available again and there is no longer a selective ban on navigation in the Deurganckdok,” said Port of Antwerp-Bruges in the latest update.

The incident occurred on 7 June, when oil leaked during a bunker operation and was discovered in the Deurganck dock late afternoon. After the incident, the authority of the Belgian port decided to close Deurganckdok temporarily.
