FREE: Fratelli Cosulich distributes MFM bunkering booklet

16 Apr 2018

The Singapore arm of international bunkering firm Fratelli Cosulich is sharing an information booklet on mass flowmeter (MFM) bunkering to interested parties within the shipping and marine fuels community, says the CEO and Board Member of the Fratelli Cosulich Group of Companies.

The booklet, Best Practises for Mass Flow Meter Bunkering using E+H System, is co-developed with MFM equipment manufacturer Endress+Hauser (E+H) and supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

“It’s an idea we had awhile back when we realised there wasn’t sufficient understanding of how mass flowmeters work for bunkering,” Timothy Cosulich tells Manifold Times.

“We feel that as a reliable bunker supplier, part of our role is to educate customers and explain how to best use the MFM.

“Now, we want to make sure not only our clients, but all users of MFM bunkering systems in the industry, know how to get all the relevant information and avoid being cheated.”

MFM systems by themselves do not prevent cheating, but is a tool that allows stakeholders to check if they have been cheated, says Cosulich who adds the equipment can only be as good as its user.

“But of course, one must first know how to use it first. So this is why we developed this [booklet] and we got support of E+H and particularly the endorsement of MPA which gives a lot of legitimacy to this booklet,” he explains.

“The booklet is very short and easy to understand and can be used by bunker buyers as well as Chief Engineers of receiving vessels.

“It is a set of best practises completely consistent with TR48 so it’s neither an addition nor an alternative to TR48. This is consistent and based on TR48 and the set of best practises.

“We are sharing how an honest bunker supplier should work as we want a fair and honest market.”
