Monday June 18, 2012

The bunkering licence of supplier Winbuild Petrofin Pte Ltd (Winbuild) has been cancelled effective 15 June, 2012, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has announced.

The MPA said Winbuild had allowed another company to use Winbuild's Bunker Delivery Notes (BDNs) to supply bunkers to the customers of that other company, and had delivered bunkers on behalf of an unlicensed company to customers of that unlicensed company.

The statement reminded bunker craft opperators that they may not deliver bunkers "on behalf of any other person, firm or company or which is not a bunker supplier licensed by MPA" and they will "not hesitate to suspend or cancel the bunkering licence of any bunker supplier or bunker craft operator that is found to have contravened any of the terms and conditions of the Licences."
