Committed to the well-being of the Chancayana community and the care of the environment, Cosco Shipping Ports, in coordination with the Municipality of Chancay and the Captaincy of the Port of the town, came together in an integral way to contribute to reducing the impact of the oil spill that began in the La Pampilla refinery and that extended to the local beaches, causing a great environmental impact on the coast.
One of the first activities was the cleaning campaign on Chacra y Mar beach, in which the company in charge of the construction of the Chancay Multipurpose Port Terminal donated taybe suits, gloves, among others, and supported with more materials for the cleaning of the sand contaminated with oil. Likewise, its workers, its contractors and subcontractors joined to support the collection of oil.
Cosco Shipping Ports, which has been developing the most ambitious project of implementation of multipurpose port terminals on the south coast of the South AmericanPacific, is committed to the economic and social development of Chancay. And given this fact, considered the worst ecological disaster in recent times in the capital, it was necessary to support the environmental recovery of the beaches, which has also harmed fishermen and generated much indignation among the population and animal protection organizations.
According to the Environmental Assessment and Control Agency (OEFA) and the National Service of Natural Areas Protected by the State (Sernanp), so far, 20 beaches in Ventanilla, Santa Rosa, Ancón and Chancay have been affected by crude oil. In this context, the crude oil reached several ecosystems causing serious damage to the habitat of, penguins, sea lions, among other species.
Cosco Shipping Ports previously responded to the call of the District Municipality of Chancay and the Captaincy of the Port of Chancay to work in an articulated way actions to contain the expansion of oil that reached the beaches of the province of Huaral. The attention and coordination were immediate to try to contain the great environmental damage that is affecting the country.
Among the first measures adopted, in conjunction with the CHEC S.A.C Consortium, was the placement of barriers to prevent the expansion of the fuel that invaded El Cascajo beach. Likewise, we are also very attentive to the impact it could generate in Miramar, Pocitos, Infantería, San Francisco, Hermosa, Las Conchitas, Pasamayo, Peralvillo and other beaches on the Chancay coast.
