More complaints about emissions of outdated ferry
The 'Med Star' was denounced again for contamination in the Bay of Algeciras with its high emission levels. Environmentalists urged the shipping company to withdraw a ship they consider outdated. Agaden Ecologistas en Acción has transferred the complaints of the residents of Algeciras of the Virgen del Carmen avenue to the recurrence of contaminatio of the ship that covers the route between the ports of Algeciras and Tangier-Med. A few days after the announcement that the 'Med Star' was removed from service for the repair of its engines and combustion adjustments, the ferry has returned to the waters of the Bay with emission levels that for Agaden violate the permitted levels. The ship returned on May 18, at 5:45 p.m. casting a large black smoke plume seen from many points in the city.
