CTI-Maritec: Low flashpoint VLSFO bunker fuels found in Singapore

12 Jul 2022

Marine fuel testing and marine surveying business Maritec Pte Ltd (CTI-Maritec) on Sunday (10 July) released a statement on low flashpoint VLSFO bunkers at Singapore:

Maritec Pte Ltd has tested five samples representing VLSFO deliveries in Singapore with flashpoint as low as 50°C for the period of 12th June 2022 to 24th June 2022 from various suppliers. According to SOLAS Chapter II-2, Part B, Reg. 4. Clause 2.1.1 states, no oil fuel with a flashpoint of less than 60°C shall be used.

ISO 4259 interpretation for tested flashpoint temperature is not taken into consideration here as the safety of onboard crew and vessel is of higher precedence.

This does not reflect the overall quality of fuel being supplied at Singapore, if you intend to bunker at this region please request for a Certificate of Quality prior to loading.
