Rescuers say collect 33,000 cubic meters of fuel-water mix in Norilsk

MOSCOW, Jun 22 (PRIME) -- Rescuers have collected almost 33,000 cubic meters of fuel-water mix on the site of the Norilsk fuel spill, a representative told PRIME on Monday.

"25 cubic meters of fuel-water mix was collected in a day, and a total of 32,830 cubic meters since the accident at TETs-3 (power plant)," the official said.

Fuel evacuation from the Ambarnaya River amounted to 25,341 cubic meters, of which 13 cubic meters were collected over the last 24 hours.

Rescuers have installed about 80 lines of skimmers on about 8.5 kilometers on the Ambarnaya River.

A fuel tank at Norilsk-Taimyr Energy Company, part of Norilsk Nickel group, lost pressure on May 29 and leaked out fuel and lubricants into the river Ambarnaya, causing a fire.
