The Falzon Group of Companies is an established and reputable provider of bunkers and other services to vessels sailing around Malta and the Mediterranean. The professional execution of these services by the Falzon Group is backed by an expertise achieved through over fifty years’ participation in the petroleum industry and the marine sector. San Lucian Oil Company Ltd is the Falzon Group’s primary supplier of bunkers, offering most grades of marine distillate and residual fuels in conformity with ISO specifications and low sulphur restrictions.
The availability of fuel storage facilities together with the business acumen of the Group’s organisation ensure that the bunkers supplied not only conform to required specifications but are also competitively priced. The Falzon Group’s environmental arm is responsible for the collection and processing of waste oil and of bilge and ballast water from all sectors of the marine industry, both inside port as well as offshore the Maltese islands.
To further consolidate the Group’s foremost position in the field of pollution prevention, one of the Falzon barges is contracted by EMSA, the European Maritime Safety Agency, as a stand-by oil-spill recovery vessel for the central Mediterranean. Ship agency services, transportation of petroleum products and additional ancillary services can also be accommodated. The Falzon Group also operates the Ricasoli Port Reception Facility within the Grand Harbour for Marpol wastes from ships.
When one considers the complete package of services offered by the Falzon Group in the Mediterranean, as well as the advanced maritime infrastructure of the Maltese Islands, Malta becomes the obvious port of call in the central Mediterranean, and the Falzon Group the obvious service provider.
