Improve the bunker procedure of your vessel

Certified solutions for optimized fuel management and reduced costs when loading fuel

Ensuring smart fuel management and delivering maximum transparency when loading bunker fuel are your day-to-day challenges. Since fuel costs can account for up to 60% of the OPEX of your vessel, it is even more important than ever to have more control of the cost-effectiveness of your vessel. That’s where we step in, supporting you to overcome these challenges with ground-breaking solutions for the marine industry. Even cutting costs by a fraction translates to substantial cash savings.


  • Higher and sustainable efficiency with direct and quick mass measurement without converting volume thanks to the Coriolis flow measuring principle

  • Highest possible measuring accuracy even of highly viscous and aerated fluids with Coriolis flow measurement using Promass

  • High level of transparency during bunkering thanks to continuous and simultaneous monitoring of process parameters such as: mass flow (bidirectional), bunker fuel quantity, density-pressure-temperature and air index

  • Fewer bunker disputes, i.e. discrepancies between billed and delivered bunker fuel quantity with clear documentation of irregularities due to excessive tank stripping or the “cappuccino effect” for example

  • Measurement integrity since all relevant system components are sealed by independent agencies and the system is certified in accordance with MID (MI-005) and recognized for commercial use by the Maritime Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore

Maximum efficiency for ultimate fuel economy

With the Promass Coriolis mass meter, which is suitable for all fuel types, the fuel is measured and presented with unprecedented accuracy. With our reliable fuel consumption metering system, different fuels can be measured without the need for readjustment. In conjunction with other vessel data (speed, wind, waves etc.) it is possible to determine the optimum operating state for your vessel and thereby maximize efficiency.

Maximum transparency for complete peace of mind when loading

As we all know, much uncertainty can be associated with traditional quantity measurement via tank gauging, for example, due to error-prone volume to mass calculation as well as disregarded air content caused by tank stripping and the “cappuccino effect”. Very often, this leads to incorrect billing and unwanted bunker disputes between the supplier and buyer. In response to these challenges our engineers have developed a sophisticated and reliable bunker fuel metering system.
