Bunker trade has been opened up to encourage investment in bunkering and competitive oil storage.

The Mauritius Ports Authority is providing incentive scheme, as far as port charges is concerned to vessel calling Port-Louis for bunkering; port charges at discounted rates with respect to duration of stay in port.
Duration of vessel’s stay Rebates % Remarks
>0 up to 48 hours 50 % rebates on port dues and anchorage fees The vessel would benefit from rebated scheme for her two (2) days stay.
48 hours up to 60 hours (3rd day of stay) Same scheme as above for the whole three (3) days of stay The vessel would still beneficiate from the 50% rebates for the third day provided her stay does not exceed 60 hours in total
48 hours up to 72 hours 50 % rebates on port dues and anchorage for the first two (2) days; the discount on anchorage dues for the third day would be 25% The vessel would still benefit from 50 % rebates for the first two (2) days; but the rebate for anchorage dues for the third day would be 25 %
For a 4 days stay period 50 % rebates on port dues and anchorage being maintained for the first two days; the rebates rate on anchorage dues for the third day would be 25 %; no discount applicable as from the 4th day on anchorage dues The vessel would start paying full rate on anchorage dues as from the 4th day of stay
To vessels with greater than 35000 gt, calculation is on a sliding scale (as per port tariffs available in the download section of our website). This comprises a 50 % discount on port tariffs items, namely, port dues, anchorage, pilotage and tug services.

In June 2013, the Port Limit was extended enabling anchorage of large vessels. The Ports Authority and all other concerned stakeholders have implemented an e-bunkering system to quicken the bunker request process.

Outward port clearance also is issued electronically; where same may be sent to Master through email – lowering cost in terms of boat hire for delivery at anchorage.
