The Qushan temporary anchorage, an area dedicated to bunkering operations, has been launched, said the Port of Zhoushan on Monday (18 April).

Several officials, including personnel from Zhoushan Maritime Safety Administration and Zhoushan Customs, attended the opening ceremony. 

The event’s highlight revolved around the first bunkering operation where Sinopec Zhoushan Petroleum Co., Ltd.’s bunker tanker Fujie 17 delivered 4,700 tons of bunker fuel to the 400,000 dwt bulker Ore Ningbo.


Qushan Temporary Anchorage is located at the intersection of Yangshan, Zhonghang, Donghang channels and other international shipping routes. About 45,000 international ships sail through this route every year, making it a strategic location, according to the port.

For more than a year, the port has cooperated with Zhoushan Maritime Safety Administration, Municipal Finance Bureau, Municipal Meteorological Bureau, High-tech Zone Management Committee, Daishan County and other relevant departments to enable the temporary anchorage of Qushan to supply bunker fuel, and to further develop the anchorage from the traditional berthing function.

The improvements to the anchorage included improving the supporting facilities, communications, video surveillance, oil spill prevention safety measures, and digital supervision, and forming a standard process for the construction of maritime service anchorages.

The opening of the anchorage further enhanced the development potential of an international maritime service base.
