Singapore-based bunker surveying firm Majestic Maritime Services (MMS) has recently completed a mass flowmeter (MFM) training course organised by mass flowmeter (MFM) manufacturer Endress + Hauser (E+H).
The Endress+Hauser bunkering course provides technical insights and industry experience, and share additional know-how to the various stakeholders in the marine fuels industry, such as bunker surveyors, suppliers, buyers, shipowners, oil traders or oil majors, says Mohamed Abdenbi, Business Process Consultant, Endress+Hauser.
Mohamed told Manifold Times that topics covered by the courses are:
“The course conducted by E+H offers Majestic Maritime Services staff an additional perspective on MFM bunkering operations, this time from the equipment manufacturer’s point of view,” Sky Sim, the Managing Director of MMS, told Manifold Times.
“MFM bunkering operations for fuel oil have started at Singapore from 2017 and distillate deliveries are scheduled to take place from 1 July 2019; this is a good time to prepare MMS’ staff for increased deliveries using MFM technology from the market leading MFM system supplier in Singapore.
“Though the course is not a compulsory requirement, we believe such an initiative prepares our surveyors to better serve MMS’ clientele at the world’s largest bunkering port.”
