Singapore-based third party mass flowmeter (MFM) calibration firm Mogas Flow Lab (MFL) launched its latest facility at the republic on 19 January, 2018.
"MFL started plans to build the third generation lab on 5 December 2016," a company spokesman told audience in a private launch ceremony attended by Manifold Times.
"We took approximately one year to plan, develop and construct the facility."
According to him, MFL's first generation calibration lab was established in 1991 at Port Dickson, Malaysia.
"Shell took the first initiative to use mass flowmeters for marine loading and unloading operations and invited MFL because they are aware an essential component of using this custody transfer metering technology is obtaining an mutually acceptable quantity kilogram through calibration," he said.
"As such, we built our first generation lab at Port Dickson in 1991."
MFL's second generation lab was build ten years later at Tuas, Singapore in 2001.
The latest third generation MFM calibration facility has a 250 metric tonne (mt) per hour calibration and measurement capacity (CMC).
It is currently in phase one of operations; phase two of operations will see CMC ramp up to 1,500 mt per hour.
MFL will proceed with the second phase to cater to the need for Singapore’s bunkering sector in 2018, an area which MFL sees new growth opportunities.
"We are a company that always delight our customers with a passion to help them see and make the most of every opportunity to increase productivity and profitability," he says.
