Fuel Bunker Control - Unique bunkering system for vessels

Flow Metering

Abstract: Today’s global transport business and maritime container business face serious time pressure. When it comes to bunkering, there is only a short window of time to control the bunkered fuel effectively. After bunkering, the vessel heads out to the next harbor and the crew must check the vessel’s tanks very quickly to verify whether the actual paid amount of HFO was delivered by the barge. Complicating matters even more, the measurement method of sounding a tank either on land at the barge or on the vessel is error-prone.

Furthermore, there is a certain amount of un-pumpable fuel in the vessels and barge tanks. As the volume of the inhomogeneous HFO also includes air and gases, the result is a faulty overall volume.
