New Bunker Fuel Measurement System

Thursday, July 09, 2009

Nautical Control Solutions (NCS) announced that Buffalo Marine Service of Houston is rolling out an advanced bunker fuel measurement system to support customers along the Texas and Louisiana coasts. Part of the FuelTrax Marine Fuel Management system, this new feature provides a data acquisition and reporting tool designed to automatically measure bunker fuel as it is pumped from a barge onto a vessel. FuelTrax should provide real-time measurement of bunker fuel deliveries irrespective of product type, viscosity, or temperature. More importantly, the system was developed to accurately measure barrels and metric tons regardless of the presence of air, fuel, or both in the piping system.
