The Zhoushan Port Comprehensive Bonded Zone Management Committee on Friday (29 April) said it has worked together with the Zhoushan Maritime Safety Administration and the Ningbo Maritime Safety Administration to compile an updated document to assist shipowners for bunkering operations.
The Zhoushan Bonded Marine Fuel Oil Bunkering Business Report to Shipowners (2022 Edition) provides international shipowners with more convenient Zhoushan bunker fuel supply information.
The report includes Zhoushan’s latest bunkering supply anchorage coordinates, navigation requirements, meteorological information and operating conditions.
Compared with the 2021 version of the notice to shipowners, the 2022 version adds operation requirements for the temporary anchorage in Qushan, and updates the navigation procedures of the Xiazhimen and Tiaozhumen anchorages, as well as the relevant precautions for the Xiushan anchorage.
The Qushan temporary anchorage was officially opened on 17 April, with the first bunkering operation carried out during the opening ceremony.
This time, two new oil supply anchors were added to further reduce the pressure on the southern oil supply anchorages, and five oil supply anchorages, namely Xiazhimen, Tiaozhumen, Mazhi, Xiushan and Qushan, were formed to build a “connecting the south and the north” for supply.
