The majority of bunkering tankers at Singapore are being conducted using Endress+Hauser (E+H) mass flowmeter (MFM) bunker delivery systems, show Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) data.
To date, there are a total of 93 E+H MFM bunkering systems installed on marine fuel delivery tankers at Singapore compared to 57 Emerson MFM bunkering systems.
In detail, 150 out of 213 bunkering tankers operating at Singapore port are currently equipped with MFM systems onboard.
Of the 150 MFM-equipped vessels, 142 bunkering vessels are currently active in the market; a total of eight ships are inactive as there are five waiting acceptance tests, two out of the market due to loss of license, and one awaiting zero verification.
Fuel oil deliveries (including tankers which offer both fuel oil and marine gas oil products) are handled by 135 vessels; 86 (64%) are using E+H MFM systems while 49 (36%) have Emerson MFM systems installed on board.
There are currently seven MGO bunkering tankers using MFM technology for fuel deliveries; three (43%) are using E+H MFM systems while four (57%) have Emerson MFM systems installed.
Singapore bunker sales volume surpassed the 50 million metric tonne (mt) mark in 2017; the first year mass flowmeters was officially adopted for all fuel oil bunkering operations.
