Our response

FOST works for Total and for third parties. If you need assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Various types 

  • Theorical and exercise training on-site and in our offices
  • On-spot training the staff with the handling of the equipment placed at their disposal
  • Audit policy on equipments against pollution
  • Preventive deployments of equipments during trials
  • Response at the time of an accidental discharge

Three types of response

  • Supply staff for teaching and advising
  • Supply of equipment and staff to deploy it
  • Provision of equipment alone

    Three scenarios of mobilization 

    • Response operations for Total
    • Activation of convention between the FOST and a third party
    • Requisition by the Autorities

    The equipment, in boxes, containers or on road trailers, can quickly be dispatched. The localization of the warehouse near the airport of Marseilles Provence and the motorway favors speed of mobilization.

    Exemples d'intervention 


    FOST has intervened on multiple pollution by hydrocarbons. Some were related to shipwrecks (tankers (Erika, Prestige) or non tankers (Tricolor)), others with operational sites (refineries, depoits...).

    In addition to the response for pollution by hydrocarbons, the FOST takes part in tests of antipollution materials and preventive operations (ex: protection of the boats of the America's Cup). In recent years, FOST has intervened in France, in Spain, and Germany.
