BUNKER INVESTIGATION AND DETECTION
Bunker investigation and detection is essential to prevent fuel delivery loses due to pilferage. With high bunker cost being one of the largest operating expenses incurred in a TC voyage, it therefore becomes vitally important for charterers to know the exact bunker quantity onboard at the time of bunker shipboard delivery.
PSMC is your ideal partner for marine bunker fuel inspections and detection. Our team of master mariners and chief engineers conduct unbiased, independent and diligent surveys and ensure you have rapid access to quantity and quality of fuel purchased reports. Our dedicated team goes on board vessels to do quantity measurement inspection services for fuel, issuing detailed bunker survey reports to confirm fuel delivery and report questionable fuel consumption figures or excessive differences.
During this survey we verify the Onboard Quantity of fuel, lubes and sludges as well as adjustments in vessel piping, verify sounding tables and present our findings in a comprehensive report.
To prevent bunker misappropriation PSMC carry out 221B or bunker detective surveys on behalf of charterers to find concealed bunker fuel onbaord.
Our surveys have yielded results of excess bunkers ranging from 05-50MT of IFO.
