File to the Tarragona company Global Talke SL
The Business Department of the Generalitat de Catalunya has opened a file on the company Global Talke SL as a result of the two incidents it suffered last week and which required the activation of Plaseqta in the pre-alert phase.
The Company's action has been carried out at the request of the Tarragona City Council. The Mossos d'Esquadra, through the Central Area of the Environment, has also carried out actions and opened proceedings as a result of the fire on October 18, which involved a first inspection. On the 21st, and as a result of a new incident, a second one was made.
The inspections have led to the preparation of a report that has been sent to the court. As a result of this, the Tarragona prosecutor's office has opened investigative proceedings, as already advanced by the Daily.
The Tarragona City Council requested that the Generalitat clarify, through its competent bodies, the causes of the two incidents, evaluate compliance with the regulations on industrial and occupational safety and settle the responsibilities that may arise.
The fire on October 18 occurred in a warehouse that stored flammable liquid chemical products and caused a cloud of toxic calcium chloride smoke outside the warehouse. During the intervention of the emergency services, two firefighters were affected and required transfer to the Joan XXIII hospital. On the morning of the 21st, the rain caused a chemical reaction in some waste that caused carbon monoxide to be released.
