More services in addition to bunkering is need at Mauritius port in order for the sector to be successful, says the Marketing and Ocean Operations Manager of Port-Louis based logistics group Celero.
“The state is doing its best on this issue, but I think the operators have to contribute,” Neerish Chooramun told local news agency Le Défi Media in an interview.
“We have a population of 1.3 million and this is not likely to increase. There are growing sectors such as transhipment, among others.”
“Several projects have been announced at the local level but there is a delay in the implementation,” he adds.
“In addition to Bunkering, the port had to be able to offer an efficient set of services so that a ship that dropped anchor at the port that pays a fee could be fully supplied, not only at bunkering but also in ancillary services and products.”
According to Chooramun, the Mauritius Port Authority is organising a maritime week in January 2018.
Celero will be organising a bunker training course with the theme "Moving to Next Level" on 22 January at the event.
The training will be provided by Justin Murphy, the CEO of the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) who will brief delegates on the upcoming global sulphur cap for marine fuel on 2020, digitisation of the bunkering sector, and more.
