Emergency Management

Efficient Planning and Response

A proper management structure and adequate allocation of resources for an efficient response are the pillars of Emergency Management at Porto do Açu Operações. To ensure efficient management and a response structure, we have an Incident Command System (ICS) in place and record our procedures though the Emergency Plans.

To address the emergency scenarios identified, we have a dedicated structure and team to prevent and respond to situations such as victim rescue; medical evacuation; building, industrial, and forest fires; chemical spills; and marine oil spills. These flows are integrated with the port community.

Center of Operations and Response to Emergencies (CORE)

This integrates the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS), property security, and risk and emergency management to optimize operational control and increase synergies in routine operations and in response to emergencies.

Mutual Assistance Plan (PAM):

This plan formalizes the procedures for integrating the emergency teams of the companies located in the port in order to contribute to the adoption and dissemination of good practices that promote safe operations in the port complex.

Emergency Response Base (BPAE)

These teams and equipment respond to oil spills at sea in order to ensure the efficient response and management of incidents, mitigating environmental impacts.

Port of Açu Area Plan:

Coordinated by INEA (State Environmental Institute), the plan relies on the integrated participation of all terminals operating at the port to respond to oil emergencies at sea, together with other related institutions such as the Brazilian Navy, the Brazilian Emergency Management Agency, and the Brazilian Institute of the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA). The plan is being designed and is expected to be finalized in 2022. It will formalize the mechanisms for sharing resources to respond to emergencies involving oil at sea and integration with the National Contingency Plan.
