    presentations

     

    This year, 2017 NOWPAP MERRAC Expert Meeting was planned to hold an International Conference in order to commemorate the 10th year of Hebei Spirit oil spill incident and discuss the lessons learnt from the major oil and HNS spills around the world so that the field of maritime disaster response could move forward 100 and more years with the future prospects by looking back the past and the present of maritime disaster response.

    This year of 2017 is a very meaningful year not only for the Korea citizens who went though the most major incident ever occurred in Korean history but also for the relevant organizations and experts related to the Nahodka oil spill incident and Torry Canyon oil spill incident. Because, this year is, the 10th year of Hebei Spirit oil spill incident occurred in 2007 in Korea, the 20th year of Nahodka oil spill incident occurred in 1997 in Japan and the 50th year of Torry Canyon oil spill incident occurred in 1967.

    Around 240 participants from international and national organizations including the delegations from NOWPAP member countries (Peoples Republic of China, Japan, Russian Federation), Canada, USA, IMO, IOPC Funds, ITOPF, OSRL and IPIECA were attended at this very special Conference. 13 presentations were made during the conference regarding the reviews of major oil spills, the latest national policies and technologies and the future outlooks of maritime disaster response.

     

     exhibition and tour

     

    Together with the Conference, the R&D technology exhibition was prepared outside of the conference room and also, maritime disaster response exercise were carried out at the pre-arranged exclusive port of Busan Coast Guard Korea and Marine Environment Research and Training Institute of KOEM.

    The international conference with 3 sessions in 2 days seem to be a short period of time to have in-depth discussions and to share all the valuable experiences, however, it was held in great success with fruitful results despite having a international conference for the first time in NOWPAP region.
