Global bunker fuel supply and procurement company TFG Marine, a joint venture between Trafigura and shipping firms Frontline and Golden Ocean, on Thursday (16 March) said it installed and calibrated the first of its planned mass flow meters for bunkering.
It is now operational on the TFG Marine-chartered UniBarge B.V. MTS Sydney at the Port of Rotterdam.
TFG Marine stated it is one of the first marine fuel suppliers to introduce this fuel measuring technology in the ARA region, providing its customers with unrivalled accuracy and full transparency on their marine fuel deliveries.
“Thank you to UniBarge B.V. and MFM manufacturer Endress+Hauser Group for their help in bringing this innovative approach to bunker supplies to fruition,” said TFG Marine in a social media statement.
