OW Bunker takes mass flowmeter to Rotterdam

OW Bunker is continuing to roll out its flow measurement technology across its global bunker fleet.

The company has announced it recently installed a Coriolis flowmeter on a refuelling barge in Rotterdam.
OW Bunker is the first independent physical fuel distributor to use the technology when supplying customers in the region.

Reports say the Coriolis flowmeter has been installed on the bunker barge Valsinni, a barge with a tank capacity of 3.15 tonnes and supplies customers with low sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) at a rate of up to 600 tonnes per hour.

Following a testing period, the Valsinni will be the only supplier controlled barge in Rotterdam equipped with the technology to measure the quantity of fuel supplied to a receiving vessel.

The company's first supply of the technology was in Singapore last June.
