Supplier of marine fuels and bunkering services Minerva Bunkering on Thursday (9 September) published a whitepaper which found the Advanced Delivery Platform (ADP) being able to reduce the total time taken during bunkering operations by more than two hours, amongst other benefits.
The whitepaper Refining bunker barge performance using coriolis meter technology and the Advanced Delivery Platform looks in detail at how Coriolis technology and the ADP works together to enhance bunkering operations.
Operational results using the ADP found an increase in efficiencies of pre- and post-pumping processes including documentation, where the duration of which was reduced by more than two hours, to be the appreciable difference.
In addition to the reduction in time spent completing the bunkering operation, digitised reports and bunker profiles were made available instantaneously.
As such, management from Hafnia was able to view all details of the delivery and digital documentation upon completion of the operation via ADP Online.
“We have been vocal about wanting to see this sort of technology and process applied to other major ports in addition to Singapore,” said Peter Martin Grünwaldt, Hafnia’s Vice President of Bunker Procurement.
“A supplier has stepped up to the task, and we are here to support it as promised. It is a big step towards more efficient operations for the industry-at large, and will certainly be positive for vessel operations in these ports.”
