Marine fuel costs represent a major portion (60–70%) of a ship’s operating cost. With increasing oil prices and conservation efforts, careful fuel management and increased engine efficiency have become vital for environmental and financial reasons. Fuel flow measurement with Coriolis technology provides the foundation for increased fuel efficiency and accurate accounting of fuel purchases. Even a medium-sized 30,000 DWT vessel can consume 20 tons of fuel oil per day, which at today’s prices is greater than USD6,000 per day. This white paper describes how Micro Motion Coriolis meters can decrease the cost and waste associated with the fuel supply chain, from on-shore blending and barge loading to ship bunkering and fuel efficiency optimization.
