1). Bunker Quantity & Quality Survey (BQS)

When buying fuel, you need to know that the ship receives the amount of fuel purchased and that this fuel is neither contaminated nor of a substandard quality that could adversely affect the ship’s fuel system, engine or environmental performance.

Our in-house team consist of experienced surveyors, master mariners and chief engineers have proven record of finding discrepancies for almost every bunker operation with zero losses.

Inspectors survey and sample representative product from bulk storage tanks, tankers, cargo ships, barges, shore storage and transfer facilities, rail-cars and warehouses. Our chemists follow accepted industry and regulatory methods and practices to obtain accurate, reliable and repeatable results.

3). On/Off Hire Survey

Since bunker is an expensive product, it is important to establish the exact quantity of onboard when the charter begins and again when it ends. At PT. BSM MARITIM INDONESIA, our in-house surveyors physically gauge all tanks onboard, ensure correctness in his gauging (record tank reference heights and compare them with the calibration tables), physically check each tanks temperature and carefully apply the correction factors when calculating the quantity.

4). Bunker Detective Survey

Our Detective Survey addresses both, physical loss of bunkers and fuel consumption optimization.

  • Find undeclared hidden bunkers, identify tampering of sounding pipes, magic pipes, & concearled spaces.
  • Fuel efficiency analysis and optimization of vessel performance and efficiency.

Implementing programs that increase ship’s fuel efficiency and optimise vessel performance have become increasingly popular. Bunker fuel being the biggest part of their expense, shipping companies are investing large sums in systems that promise increased voyage returns.

From our analysis of data gathered over last years, we have seen that while increasing fuel efficiency is vital, its impact on the overall voyage return can be rather small unless efficient methods of curbing loss of fuel that is not actually consumed in the engines are implemented.
