Mass flow meters can solve most of the problems related to bunker fraud when ships take on new fuel. But it is not a silver bullet, says the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, (MPA), where tanker barges will be required to install mass flow meters in 2017.
"Mass flow metering for bunkering in the Port of Singapore is being introduced as part of MPA’s ongoing efforts to retain our position as a trusted and reliable bunkering hub. The use of the mass flow meter system will enhance transparency in the bunkering process, improve operational efficiency and increase the productivity of the entire industry," says Dr. Parry Oei, Director (Port Services), Maritime and Port Authority.
