The headquarters confirmed emergency cooperation and proceeded with a hands-on tabletop drill. MOL continually enhances its expertise in emergency response by simulating serious marine accidents and incidents through tabletop drills, raising safety awareness throughout the MOL Group and pursuing its goal of becoming “a world leader in safe operation.”
