Bunker Fuel Sampling Solutions

One of the most important aspects of any bunkering operation is ensuring a representative sample. Not only is it imperative to get a trustworthy sample for onboard bunker fuel testing and analysis, but the importance of a suitably drawn and witnessed representative bunker fuel oil sample cannot be over-emphasised. It forms the basis of all discussion, debate or dispute resolution relating to the bunkering.  

  • The IMO Marpol ANNEX VI regulations have been in force since 2005.
  • Any lack of certification or failure to be able to demonstrate due diligence will attract scrutiny from Port State Control.
  • We make this easy by offering fully compliant and approved solutions (GL & LR Approved).
