System for the prevention and response to marine and atmospheric pollution derived from spills of chemical substances in the maritime and port environment, made up of the following subsystems.
Prevention and response to oil spills on a local scale (bays, ports and estuaries) by developing tools that integrate: High-resolution operational systems, Risk assessment systems and response plans based on the risk assessment carried out.
Development of a comprehensive system to prevent and manage oil spills in a marine environment.
The system is currently implemented at CEPSA facilities, namely the refineries of Gibraltar-San Roque (Algeciras), La Rábida (Huelva) and Tenerife (Canary Islands).
Statistical modeling in the medium and long term of oil spills in offshore installations. Explosions (blowout), deep and/or surface spills, in order to improve prevention systems and plan the response to oil pollution caused by activities at offshore installations.
TESEO is a 3D, state-of-knowledge, numerical model to simulate the transport and degradation of hydrocarbons, as well as the drift of floating objects and people in marine environments, on both regional (offshore) and local (ports, bays and estuaries) scales. It consists of a transport module and a hydrocarbon weathering module, coupled to a near-field model to simulate deep explosions (blowouts).
Athenea is a system for preventing and managing pollution during loading/unloading operations and when handling hydrocarbons in maritime and port environments. It was developed by the oil company CEPSA (Compañía Española de Petróleos, S.A.U.) and IHCantabria as part of the INNPACTO 2012 tender (Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness).
