Bunkering

Each bunker vessel that comes to deliver in port of North Sea Port has to have a bunker permit for the North Sea Port port area (see article 3.6.1 of the General police regulations for North Sea Port Flanders).

This permit can be applied for by letter or by e-mail to the port commander. A valid certificate of approval of the motor tanker has to be enclosed.

For each bunker supply, before the start of the delivery the port commander’s department of North Sea Port has to be contacted by VHF channel 11. They will register the data of the delivery in the ENIGMA+ port information system.

Whenever there is an inspection by the harbour master’s office, a copy of the bunker checklist has to be submitted.

You can find the conditions that have to be fulfilled and blank bunker checklists in the Dangerous and/or harmful materials regulation (in Dutch: Codex gevaarlijke goederen) under Chapter III.4.
