Cebu Megalube was the first environmental management company to respond to the Department of Environment & Natural Resources – Environment Management Bureau (DENR EMB)’s call for aid to contain and clean up the oil spill resulting from the sinking of MV St. Thomas Aquinas of 2GO Travel which collided with the cargo vessel, Suplicio Express Siete on August 16, 2013 at Lawis Ledge, near the port of Cebu City.
The sunken St. Thomas Aquinas was carrying 120 tons of bunker fuel oil and 20 tons of diesel.
Less than 24 hours after the collision, Cebu Megalube immediately sent empty drums, crew and other logistics to help the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) anti-oil spill response team working to contain the oil spill that has reached the shores of the Municipality of Cordova, Mactan Island, Cebu.
The company also donated large quantities of indigenous oil absorbent fibers made from round fountain palm leaves (locally known as anahaw fiber or “lanot”) while its engineering and technical team is working with local government officials, the PCG, military units & other government agencies to help address the damage to the environment.
Cebu Megalube is actively encouraging members of the private sector: business community, NGOs and other organizations to donate equipment, tools and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to the clean up team.
