Tankerska Plovidba d.d. Settlement
Tankerska Plovidba d.d. Settles For $19,500
In July 2022, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Tankerska Plovidba d.d. (TPD), with its principal location in Croatia, in the amount of $19,500 for the company’s violation of CARB’s air quality regulations.
An investigation conducted by CARB staff revealed that the TPD vessel Ugljan, failed to operate on compliant fuel upon entry into Regulated California Waters in 2022. CARB alleged three days of violation for a penalty of $6,500 per day. TPD took prompt action after being notified of these violations and, under CARB’s supervision, began operating in compliance.
To settle the case, TPD agreed to the $19,500 penalty for the violations and to comply with CARB regulations. The $19,500 will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality.
