The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) Monday revoked the bunker craft operator licence of Pegasus Maritime (S) Pte Ltd (“Pegasus”), with effect from 16 July 2018.
“Pegasus will no longer be allowed to operate as a bunker craft operator in the Port of Singapore,” it says.
“As part of MPA’s ongoing efforts to ensure the integrity of bunkering in Singapore, checks were conducted on Pegasus earlier this year.
“MPA’s investigations revealed that Pegasus had allowed an unlicensed craft operator to use its bunker craft to make bunker deliveries.
“Given the severity of the breaches, MPA has revoked Pegasus’ bunker craft operator licence.”
MPA notes that it takes a “serious” view of contraventions of the licence terms and conditions, and will suspend or revoke the relevant licences where necessary.
The development above affects Pegasus’ bunker craft operator license; the company’s operations as a licensed bunker supplier at Singapore remains.
