Bunkerworld reporters have been in touch with various Dutch authorities (port, police, port state control) to find more details. They have not been able to help us with details relating to this particular case, but they have come back with a general reply:

We have to wait and see.. Meanwhile one of our vessel's entered the English channel (10/10) and reported that a helicopter with a measuring device was flying just above the exhaust pipe for approx. 5 min.
Crew made a picture and it was quite impressive. Looks like Port state control takes the ECA regulations very serious. Be aware and make sure you comply fully while entering ECA. ; )
