Vittol Incorporated, a Singapore based petroleum cooperation has dispelled charges that the fuel consignments supplied by it to Sri Lanka were contaminated and hence had led to mechanical failures in vehicles.
Making an announcement in this regard Vittol Incorporated had published several news paper notifications justifying its stance regarding the contaminated fuel issue.
Reports emerged that vehicles which were fuelled with the diesel consignment delivered on the 22nd of last month were faced with several mechanical errors.
In this backdrop Vittol Incorporated notes that several other countries had also received consignments off the same chain of bulk supply, but instead had not complained of any contaminations.
The stock of fuel in dispute had even been approved by quality controllers attached to the CPC.
Vittol incorporated in its news paper notification notes that the consignment which had been thus passed by CPC quality controllers was later deemed unsuitable for consumption by the Chairman of the Oil Storage Facility subsequent to a test carried out on the consignment on the 06th of August.
In its release Vittol further states despite the arrival of an international specialist in the country to ascertain the quality of the disputed fuel consignment, he has not been granted access by authorities to carry out inspections.
Meanwhile the Jathika Sewaka Sangamaya attached to the CPC convened a media briefing today.
Secretary of the CPC'S JSS Ananda Palitha speaking here noted that the report compiled by the cooperation on the contaminated fuel consignment, fell short of
the required standards.
