ExxonMobil is first to supply ECA-compliant fuel via an independently accredited MFMS in ARA
ExxonMobil has announced that it is supplying ExxonMobil Premium HDME 50™ marine fuel via an independently accredited mass flow metering system (MFMS) in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) region.
The move, which builds on the successful implementation of MFMS in Singapore and Hong Kong, meets the needs of customers for quicker, more efficient and more transparent bunkering without compromising on safety. The ARA implementation, which is accredited by Lloyd’s Register, cements ExxonMobil’s leading position in the use of MFMS for all residual and distillate types of marine fuels.
”We are delighted to announce that we’re the first to offer this system, for our ECA-compliant fuel, continuing to drive innovation through the automation of the measurement of fuel deliveries and providing peace of mind to our customers,” said Luca Volta, ExxonMobil’s Marine Fuels Venture Manager.
Depending on stem size, bunkering with an MFMS can help reduce delivery time by up to three hours, compared with conventional tank dipping. As with the previous introductions, the ARA MFMS is calibrated in line with both OIML R 117 and ISO 17025 standards, ensuring accuracy to within +/- 0.5 per cent.
