Bunker Fuel Management

Bunker Fuel Management

Bunker fuel is still the biggest part of a ship expenditure. Our Bunker Fuel Management Program addresses both, physical loss of bunkers and fuel consumption optimization for our clients’ overall efficiency.

Bunker Quantity & Quality Survey.

When buying fuel, you need to know that the ship receives the amount of fuel purchased and that this fuel is neither contaminated nor of a substandard quality that could adversely affect the ship’s fuel system, engine or environmental performance.

Royal marine is accredited by Singapore Accreditation Council. Our quality system is ISO certified. Our team of experienced in-house surveyors, Master Mariners and Chief Engineer have clients best interest at heart. We have a proven record of finding discrepancies for almost every bunker operation with zero cappuccino losses.

Our team specialize in:

We provide a thorough service to our clients, from survey, negotiation, reporting, monthly savings analysis, to keeping abreast with current market trends, to ensure our clients interest are protected.

On/Off ROB Survey.

Since bunker is an expensive product, it is important to establish the exact quantity of onboard when the charter begins and again when it ends. At Royal Marine, our in-house surveyors physically gauge all tanks onboard, ensure correctness in his gauging (record tank reference heights and compare them with the calibration tables), physically check each tanks temperature and carefully apply the correction factors when calculating the quantity.

Charterers or Owners also often request for a Vessel Condition Survey at the time of On or Off hire ROB survey for recording the vessel’s condition at the commencement or end of the charter.

Bunker Detective Survey.

Our Detective Survey addresses both, physical loss of bunkers and fuel consumption optimization.

Implementing programs that increase ship’s fuel efficiency and optimise vessel performance have become increasingly popular. Bunker fuel being the biggest part of their expense, shipping companies are investing large sums in systems that promise increased voyage returns.

From our analysis of data gathered over last years, we have seen that while increasing fuel efficiency is vital, its impact on the overall voyage return can be rather small unless efficient methods of curbing loss of fuel that is not actually consumed in the engines are implemented.

Bunker Loss Containment Workshop.

The Bunker Management and Loss Control Workshop addresses:

Who should attend:

Ship Mangers, Ship Owners, Charterers who would like to improve their understanding on the bunker trade, bunkering process and its commercial aspect

Workshop duration: 1 day
