SMTECH Ship Management has paid $2,000.00 in penalties to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, for violating air quality regulations. This settlement was reached on January 6, 2014. An investigation by the ARB showed that the SMTECH Ship Management vessel, Furness ST Kilda, failed to operate on compliant distillate fuel upon entry into Regulated California Waters. SMTECH Ship Management took prompt action after being notified of these violations and under ARB’s supervision began operating in a compliant fashion. To settle the case, SMTECH Ship Management agreed to the $2,000.00 penalty and to comply with ARB regulations.
