GAC’s ship-to-ship (STS) transfer specialist, Gulf Transfer Services (GTS) now offers a full range of OCIMF-compliant operations to vessels transiting the Malacca Straits, from the Malaysian sea port of Sungai Linggi.
The Linggi International Floating Transhipment Hub represents an excellent location for STS operations, according to GTS General Managing Capt. Ray Taylor. From there, GTS works closely with the harbour operator, TAG Marine, to bring a wide range of expert services to vessels in the sea lanes of one of the world’s busiest seaways.
“GTS is recognised and approved by most oil majors, so by signing an agreement with TAG Marine, we are taking advantage of an ideal opportunity to combine our global reputation with the benefits of a strategic location,” adds Capt. Taylor.
The scheme has the support of the Malaysian Government, and there are ambitions for further development of the port into a recognised STS transhipment location.
