Progressive Power Co Pte Ltd convicted for being an unlicensed bunker supplier

Progressive Power Co Pte Ltd pleaded guilty in court on May 20, 2014 to five charges for supplying bunkers on five occasions in the Port of Singapore without a valid bunker supplier license issued by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), as required under Regulation 64(a) of MPA Port Regulations and committed an offence punishable under Regulation 78(b) of the said Regulations. Another 10 charges were taken into consideration.

MPA had brought charges against Progressive Power Co Pte Ltd, for delivering bunkers on eight occasions as a bunker craft operator between March 17, 2013 and July 5, 2013, and for supplying bunkers on seven occasions as a bunker supplier between October 11, 2012 and January 22, 2013. Progressive Power Co Pte Ltd had used the Bunker Delivery Notes (BDN) belonging to Lian Hoe Leong & Brothers Pte Ltd for the seven transactions as a bunker supplier.

MPA had cancelled Lian Hoe Leong & Brothers Pte Ltd's bunker supplier license on 15 January 2014 for their involvement in this case as their actions breached the terms and conditions of the Bunkering Licence (Bunker Supplier).
