The technology, approved for bunker fuel deliveries by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore in 2012, has now been introduced in Hong Kong where it has been accredited by Lloyd’s Register.
Coupled with ExxonMobil’s expertise and knowledge of the bunkering process, the system helps to enhance the integrity, security and efficiency of fuel quantity measurement.
*Per 1,000MT stem size delivery at $300/MT. Includes surveyor costs, temperature delivery range and density delivery range but does not include dip tank measurement errors. A temperature measurement delta of 10°C amounts for up to US $2,100. A 3kg/m³ density difference amounts for up to US $1,000. These variables can be avoided by the use of a secure mass flow metering system, therefore negating the need of a quantity surveyor with an estimated cost of up to US $2,000.
**Comparison versus manual tank dipping.
