Shipowners, charterers and operators need to digest a lot of information in order to make optimal bunker purchasing and chartering decisions. One such important bit of information is bunker quality.
Combined with obvious considerations such as price, logistics and timely delivery, the true economic value of bunkers can only be established having measured parameters such as calorific value (energy) and short quantity (density).
Bunker Vision contains anonymized fuel quality data from thousands of recent commercial samples as tested by accredited labs on behalf of ship-owners – some of of which provide their proprietary data in return for discounted access to the system. The system is continuously updated with new tests data from ports all over the world.
Comprehensive off-spec statistics and detailed analytics on commercial, technical and regulatory test parameters help identify poorly performing suppliers and ports.
