Our history: Haven ship accident information system


Thirty years have passed since the explosion on 11 April 1991 aboard the oil tanker Haven in front of Genoa Voltri. The outbreak causes 5 deaths, 30 injuries and the largest ecological disaster in the Mediterranean. Over 140 thousand tons of crude oil catch fire, the oily mass pours along the western coast and the Haven sinks a few miles off the coast of Arenzano. Techne Consulting created a few months later for ENEA and the Ministry of the Environment an information system relating to the environmental damage resulting from the accident on the Haven ship which collected all the data and maps of the accident and the environmental monitoring campaigns carried out in the area.
