Minister Tiilikainen opened a shipwreck park in Porkkalanniemi

On Monday 3 September, Minister of the Environment, Energy and Housing Kimmo Tiilikainen opened an underwater shipwreck park in Porkkalanniemi. “It is great to bring forth these elements of our history and cultural heritage that lie below the surface”, Minister Tiilikainen says. At the ceremony Minister Tiilikainen also talked about the protection programme for the Baltic Sea and other waters. “In some of the old shipwrecks at the bottom of the Baltic Sea there may be oil or other hazardous substances. As the shipwrecks decay over time, these may start to leak and cause environmental damage. This is why, as part of the water protection programme, hazardous substances should be removed from shipwrecks that may pose such risks.”
