Bunker Vision

Transparency of bunker quality

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 water content, calorific value (energy) and density.

Bunker Vision contains anonymized fuel quality data from thousands of recent commercial samples as tested by accredited labs on behalf of ship-owners – many of which provide their proprietary data in return for free 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.

Data-driven decision support tool

Reliable and up-to-date bunker quality information help ensuring safety of crew, avoid damage to machinery and reduce environmental emissions.

Ship-owners, charterers and operators can make data-driven bunker purchasing decisions thus reducing the risk of disputes over quality.

Likewise, ship managers, bunker traders and brokers can elevate level of market intelligence when advising clients.

For the benefit of charterers, Bunker Vision contains CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data from more than 14,500 vessels as reported under the mandatory EU MRV scheme.

On the back of this, the system can help charterers make “greener” data-driven decisions when evaluating vessel options.
