Best practices to enhance accurate bunkering

A new paper by Singapore-based Ascenz Solutions provides best practices for accurate monitoring of fuel bunkering of marine fuels using mass flow meter (MFM) systems. The fuel bunkering process is essential to all ships that rely on fuel oil for operation.

Pros and cons of Coriolis Flow Meters: A solution to bunker disputes?

Accurate, on-the-spot measurement of marine bunkering is critical for both cost control and relationship management. In response to accurate measuring, since 2017, Singapore, the world’s largest marine refueling hub, has made the use of MFM compulsory. Mass Flow Metering is based on the Coriolis flow meter theory.

MPA Singapore conducts acceptance tests for MFM on bunker tankers

MPA Singapore announced that it has started the acceptance tests to roll out MFM on bunker tankers for the delivery of distillates. Namely, the use of Mass Flow Meters for bunker tankers to deliver distillates in the Port of Singapore will be Mandatory by 1 July 2019.

ExxonMobil launches MFM system for MGO in Singapore

American energy major ExxonMobil is launching a mass flow metering system (MFMS) for marine gas oil in Singapore, after the Maritime and Port Authority mandated that all distillates must be delivered via a MFMS from 1 July 2019. The first barge deliveries are set to start in May 2018, the company said.

Mass flow meters for distillates delivery now mandatory in Singapore

After successfully test-bedding the use of mass flow metering system for delivery of distillates , the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore will extend the mandatory use of MFM to all bunker tankers delivering distillates in the Port of Singapore from 1 July 2019. MFM for distillates aims to provide better assurance to both the bunker buyers and suppliers on the quantity of bunker delivered.

Watch: How MFMs benefit vessel operations

Singapore-based BW Group issued a short film explaining the background with respect to use of Mass Flow Meters, which are considered to bring change in bunkering process within an environment of increasing operational challenges. From 1 January 2017, the Port of Singapore became the first in the world to mandate the use of MFM.

Singapore’s OBS boosts bunker fleet

Ocean Bunkering Services Pte Ltd announced it will add five bunker barges to its fleet by early January, in line with its plans to expand in Singaporean marine refueling market, currently the largest in the world.
