Exciting to learn that MOT is now one of the world’s biggest physical suppliers.
By supplying both the Maersk in-house fleet and 3rd party customers MOT is quickly rising to the top of the physical supplier board.
It has been announced that Maersk is fitting Mass Flow Meters on the chartered Hong Lam bunker barges in Singapore.
MOT has previously explained to Ship & Bunker that
“…we expect that our own fleet and those of our other customers will appreciate the benefits that this equipment brings Maersk Oil Trading “Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) has a range of physical properties and varying sulphur content. We still need to deliver several million tons of HFO in Singapore in 2019, which is enough to warrant the shift to this high capacity mass flowmeter. Further, it is not limited for use with only HSFO but can be used equally well for other fuel types, including 0.5% compliant fuels. We expect that our own fleet and those of our other customers will appreciate the benefits that this equipment brings.”
According to a press release from the Danish based bunker supplier, MOT claims the title as:
“the leading operator in the bunker fuel and lubrication market”
“the world’s largest commercial buyer of marine fuel”
