Ascenz publishes whitepaper on accurate bunkering using MFM technology

25 Nov 2019

Singapore-based ‘smart shipping’ technology company Ascenz, a subsidiary of engineering firm GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz), has published a whitepaper Reliable Bunkering Practices Enhanced by New Technologies on its website.

The whitepaper, in short, identifies key aspects of inaccurate bunkering using mass flowmeters (MFMs) and best practises to enhance bunkering with the technology.

Partially filled pipes, excessive aeration in pipes, and the existence of dead volume are the main causes of inaccurate bunkering, it says.

Flow meter selection, best practices to ensure fully packed meters, the use of technology to improve flow measurements, and smart data analysis are further procedures and solutions discussed to enhance bunkering.

“Ascenz has installed over 1,400 MFM and manages about 450 vessels around the world including container vessels, workboats, bunker barges and tankers,” it concludes.

“The experiences and lessons learned from the mass fuel meter installation and meter selection is highlighted, to encourage and to pioneer the best practices of fuel meter installation in the industry.

“With the data logging and smart data platform of Shipulse, continuous research is being carried out to encourage continuous improvements and encourage innovations in the industry.”
