SINGAPORE: MPA DETAILS DISTILLATE MFM ADOPTION

Manifold Times

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) Thursday released addition details regarding the adoption of distillate mass flowmeter (MFM) bunkering systems at Singapore port.

 

The port marine circular build upon an earlier April announcement by Assistant Chief Executive (Operations) of MPA, Capt M Segar, of a co-funding scheme to help the industry defray part of the cost in installing the MFM system.

The latest announcement notes that all existing bunker tankers licensed by MPA to deliver distillates as at 26 April 2018 are eligible for the co-funding, except for those that have already received co-funding support from MPA when the MFM for Marine Fuel Oil was implemented.

Further, recipients of the co-funding will have to deploy their bunker tankers in the Port of Singapore for a period of at least one year from the date of approval by MPA.

All bunker craft owners or operators of bunker tankers eligible for the co-funding will be notified by MPA on the application process.

The mandatory use of MFM to bunker tankers delivering distillates in the Port of Singapore is slated to take effect from 1 July 2019.

“All MPA licensed bunker supplier, bunker craft operators, bunker surveying companies and bunker surveyors shall adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of their licences and relevant technical requirements for distillates deliveries by MFM in the Port of Singapore from 1 July 2019,” it notes.

“MPA will take firm action against any licensee who has acted in contravention of their licences, including suspending or revoking their bunker licences, as appropriate.”
