HALON RECEPTION FACILITIES

Reports have been received regarding difficulties in using halon reception facilities in accordance with IMO procedures and EC Regulation 2037/2000.

In particular it has been noted that some facilities have been charging excessively, up to GBP5000 per tonne, for the service of receiving halon. It is clear that there is a cost involved with the disposal of the gas and so a ‘reasonable’ charge can be expected. However, INTERTANKO is aware that in some ports there is no charge for this service. Please click here for a list of halon reception facilities

Should any difficulties be incurred when using of these facilities please contact Tim Wilkins, tim.wilkins@intertanko.com. In addition any further feedback from members on this issue would be welcomed.
