EcoMATE™, the electronic fuel management system (EFMS) from KROHNE, was specifically designed for real time monitoring of fuel consumption and bunkering and has become the solution of choice for many major shipping companies. Regardless of the vessel type, once implemented, EcoMATE™ provides the whole picture you need to gain full control of fuel consumption, emissions and bunkering.
The EcoMATE™ Bunker Verification module, one of the four software modules within the EcoMATE™ family, enables data acquisition and logging, calculation and monitoring of bunkering operations. In order to keep track of fuel oil costs and to be able to verify the amount of fuel oil received during a bunkering operation, the EcoMATE™ system also gives an overview of all corresponding flow readings.
A typical installation will consist of a flowmeter mounted in the bunkering line linked to an EcoMATE™ workstation, usually located in the control room. Supporting equipment like pressure sensors, venting and regulation valves may be recommended depending on the installation. During the bunkering process, trend graphs give you a good overview of all values. On the monitor, you can follow the exact amount of fuel oil taken on-board. Reports showing total bunker quantities received and verification of density (as delivered) can be printed and emailed to a shore station.
