In May 2019, APM Terminals Bahrain commenced a project to protect and preserve the Kingdom of Bahrain’s marine environment and natural resources. Working together with the Supreme Council of Environment, the initial phase of the seabed clean-up commenced, covering an area approximately 20 miles north of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Two boats were used during a 6-hour operation involving 10 divers. The first boat transported the divers and the second was used for waste collection. Over 70 kg of debris was collected in this initial phase.
