Maritec (Shanghai) starts fuel testing, technical services for bunker fuels at Chinese ports

01 Jun 2021

China-based marine fuel testing and consultancy firm Maritec (Shanghai) Co. Ltd will begin fuel testing and technical services for vessels bunkering at all Chinese ports from 1 June 2021.

The firm has a Shanghai-based lab with a square footage of 2000m2 and it is using the “Maritec Fuel Expert System” used at its Singapore lab.

This includes routine testing under ISO 8217, fuel system check, enhanced analysis and more advanced testing and forensics.

“Our Fuel Expert System provides customised advisory on a ship’s individual fuel test data, highlighting fuel quality characteristics and any potential problems that could be present. This offers greater assurance to ship operators and managers that their ships’ fuel systems are operating optimally, safely and efficiently,” said Jay Chan, General Manager of Maritec (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.

In addition to providing quality assurance testing during bunkering, the accumulated historical data and solutions stored in the Maritec Fuel Expert System is able to provide more detailed and precise recommendations relating to fuel storage, mixing/blending and pre-combustion trends throughout vessel’s operational voyage.

While the technology is continuously being developed, Chan said it “provides added value to our customers. It sets Maritec apart from other ITLs (Independent Testing Laboratory) in terms of technical capability and service quality”.
