MPA said that Pegasus Maritime’s bunker craft operator licence had been revoked from 16 July for allowing an unlicenced operator to use its vessel for supplying bunkers.
“As part of MPA’s ongoing efforts to ensure the integrity of bunkering in Singapore, checks were conducted on Pegasus earlier this year,” the port authority said.
“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.”
The regulator of the world’s largest bunkering port stressed that it takes a serious view of contraventions of the licence terms and conditions. The MPA acted on many occasions in the past where bunker companies have breached the terms of their licences, revoking licences and levying fines.
