ExxonMobil Marine Fuels and Lubricants is doubling its fleet of chartered bunker tankers that feature Port Authority of Singapore (MPA)-approved mass flow metering systems – a result of demand from Singapore marine operators.

The addition of mass flow metering systems onboard Vitality, Marine Noel and Sincerity bunker tankers by July 2014 will double the company’s number of chartered vessels that supply high quality marine fuel using the procedure.

ExxonMobil says the system offer marine operators savings of up to an estimated three hours and US$7,000 per delivery, as well as increase transparency during the bunkering process.

“The MPA’s recent announcement that they will mandate mass flow metering systems supports ExxonMobil’s view that this technology delivers significant value to vessel operators. This is why we have been providing our customers with the benefits of the mass flow metering system in Singapore for almost two years,” said Molina Albright, general manager, marine fuels, Asia Pacific at ExxonMobil Marine Fuels and Lubricants. 

“Our expanded mass flow metering capability will enable us to offer more marine operators the possibility of achieving the valuable time and cost savings provided by this advanced technology,” she added.

ExxonMobil’s on-board system has been developed in close collaboration with the MPA and the Standards, Productivity and Innovation Board (SPRING) Singapore.
