Sleeper trailers being set up in Louisiana to house temporary Gulf oil cleanup crews
VENICE, La. – VENICE, La. (AP) — More than 40 trailers that can sleep up to 36 workers in bunks are being brought to Louisiana coastal communities to house temporary cleanup workers involved in the Gulf oil spill.
Anthony Kelly, a subcontractor hired to set up the temporary housing, said Sunday in Venice that the air-conditioned trailers are similar to passenger train berths, with privacy curtains, lock boxes for personal items and electrical outlets.
Shower trailers are also being brought in, along with generators to power the operation.
BP CEO Tony Hayward says the company is narrowing cleanup of the nation's worst oil spill to Louisiana. Hayward says the fight could last months as the company works on a relief well.
