Mauritius government had requested assistance in dealing with the environmental crisis after a Japanese bulk carrier MV Wakashio struck a coral reef off the coast in late July resulting in an oil spill of over 1,000 tonnes into the Indian Ocean

A 10-member technical response team, consisting of Indian Coast Guard (ICG) personnel specially trained for dealing with oil spill containment measures, has been deployed to Mauritius

According to Zee News, India has sent an IAF aircraft with 30,000 kilograms of specialised equipment along with a response team to Mauritius to help it contain oil spilt by a Japanese ship. The equipment includes Ocean Booms, River Booms, Disc Skimmers, Heli Skimmers, Power packs, Blowers, Salvage barge and oil absorbent pads. The oil absorbent pads are manufactured by India using graphene.

The  equipment has been provided by the Indian Coast Guard which is the nodal body under India’s National Oil Spill-Disaster Contingency Plan (NOS-DCP).

Also, India’s assistance was in line with its policy to extend humanitarian assistance and disaster relief to its neighbours in the Indian Ocean region, guided by the Prime Minister’s vision of SAGAR (Security and Growth for All in the Region)
