Boat grounded on Lobos
Radio Sintonia:

PLATECA remains activated due to the grounding of a pleasure boat on Isla de Lobos.

The General Directorate of Emergencies of the Government of the Canary Islands, keeps activated the Territorial Emergency Plan of Civil Protection of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands (PLATECA), in a pre-alert situation and preventively in the face of the grounding of a recreational boat in the early hours of yesterday Wednesday in Isla de Lobos.

During the last night the staff of the City Council of La Oliva carried out the extraction of fuel and oil without spilling into the sea, so the emptying work is finished.

This morning a new coordination meeting was held between the Harbour Master's Office, Maritime Rescue, the Insular Directorate of the General State Administration in Fuerteventura, the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, the City Council of La Oliva, the General Directorate of Emergencies and the 112 Canary Islands, which was attended by the Deputy Minister of Territorial Cohesion, Marcos Lorenzo, to monitor the actions of the intervening services.

During the afternoon, a company specialized in underwater activities will arrive at the area of the incident to assess, together with municipal and island technicians, the state of the boat and its possible refloating and transfer out of the area of this specially protected natural area.

The 14-metre-long boat ran aground at around two o'clock in the morning on Wednesday in the area of El Marrajo, on Isla de Lobos, with five crew members of German origin on board who were rescued unharmed by the Helimer helicopter of Maritime Rescue and transferred to Lanzarote airport, where they were treated by the Spanish Red Cross.

On the part of the General State Administration, the National Maritime Plan for pollution of the marine environment in the Alert Phase remains activated and the Government of the Canary Islands maintains the PLATECA activated, in order to make available to the Harbour Master the emergency resources of the Government of the Canary Islands and the coordination of the intervening services from the 112 Canarias to guarantee the correct monitoring of the situation.
