Fuel and Liquid Cargo

From sampling and analysis to drawing up product specifications and bunkering procedures

Contamination of liquid cargoes – such as fuels and chemicals – can potentially lead to a substantial financial exposure. A thorough and detailed investigation is required. Taking samples from every stage in the transport chain is of paramount importance. As is testing by certified laboratories in strict accordance with the test methods laid down in contract specifications. And the needs of the market don’t stop there. Loss mitigation, e.g. by means of blending, reconditioning or selling through alternative trade routes is equally important.
