Compliant with the European Seveso II Directive on the prevention of major accidents and limitation of their consequences, Luka Koper d.d. is regarded an establishment of major risk thus its operations require an environmental permit. Based on the safety report, the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia issued an environmental permit which applies to the entire port area. The document encompasses the following list of potential risk sources: fruit terminal due to the use of coolants in the cooling technology, liquid cargo terminal, and tanker mooring. The acquisition of an environmental permit implies that the establishment is both technically and in terms of personnel competent for risk prevention and management. In the following days, Luka Koper shall publish on our website www.luka-kp.si under the section of environmental protection the information for public on the safety measures and the concept of prevention of major accidents.
