Title: Oil spill protection structure
Scope/coverage of the plan: To protect antarctic environment from oil spill at the King Sejong Station, oil spill protection wall was built in 2008. There are 6 oil tanks in the station of which each volume is 150㎥(total 900㎥). and Each of oil protection wall is designed to contain 700㎥, 500㎥ of oil, so wall can reserve total oil used in the station.
