About 50 liters oil were spilled on Apr 25, 2018, at 2 p.m. off the Isla de Pascua into the bight of Hanga Roa, when the barge “Rano Aroi II” of the Sociedad Agrícola y Servicios Isla de Pascua allided with the anchored “Lago Icalma” during unloading operations. The hull of the freighter was breached. The emergency response protocols were immediately activated by the port captain, and the Chilean Navy was tasked to contain the spill. The 'LSR Tokerau“ and other boats were on scene and laid out an oil boom around the 'Lago Icalma' as well as absorbent pads. The leak in the hull could be sealed and the oil leakage stopped. The situation was brought under control and the Navy was focusing on the task of eliminating oily residues and safeguarding the aquatic environment. The damage to the eco system was later to be evaluated by taking water samples.
