The BALEX DELTA 2018 EU project is a time-limited EU project supporting the organization of the 2018 edition of the HELCOM BALEX DELTA exercise. Thanks to the contribution from the EU, this exercise can take a broader scope and include chemical and shore response in addition to oil spill response at sea.

The project runs from 2017 to 2019, with a total budget of EUR 950 000, of which 85 percent is co-financed by the European Commission via DG ECHO’s Civil Protection Mechanism Exercise Programme.

The project has been selected a flagship project of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region
