Singapore is the leading port of bunkering with annual sale around 36M metric ton.Thanks for Singapore's initiative, and leaderhip, which guarantee the healthy growth of industry. But still the bunker loading and discharging are very complicated involving multiple parties and steps, which we may still have space to improve
ExxonMobil Marine Fuels & Lubricants has become the first organisation to adopt a mass flow metering system for bunker fuel delivery approved by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). The mass flow metering system, coupled with expertise and knowledge of the bunkering process, is a major step-change in measurement practices. It is designed to enhance the integrity, security, and efficiency of quantity measurement.
