Automation of measurement of fuel deliveries expanded to cover ExxonMobil Premium HDME 50™ marine fuel in the region
- Development underlines ExxonMobil’s commitment to bunkering transparency and innovation
- Mass flow metering system independently accredited by Lloyd’s Register
- Move builds on industry-leading MFMS launches in Singapore and Hong Kong
London – ExxonMobil has announced that it is the first to supply via an independently accredited mass flow metering system (MFMS) in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) region. ExxonMobil Premium HDME 50™ marine fuel is now available through an MFMS that has received third-party accreditation from Lloyd’s Register.
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 cements ExxonMobil’s leading position in the use of MFMS for all residual and distillate types of marine fuels.
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.
”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.
“Customers bunkering ExxonMobil Premium HDME 50 in ARA now benefit from faster turnaround times, greater transparency, traceability and security thanks to our independently accredited MFMS,” said Armelle Breneol, ExxonMobil’s Marine Fuels Technical Advisor.
