Singapore : PORT OF SINGAPORE sets new benchmark for bunkering practices.

By making compulsory the use of mass flow metering (MFM) system for bunkering, the Port of Singapore has become the first port in the world to do so.

Transport Minister, Lui Tuck Yew, announced this during the Singapore Bunkering Symposium recently.

In his inaugural address, the minister said that as the maiden port in the world to make the use of mass flow meters compulsory for bunkering, the Port of Singapore will set a new benchmark for bunkering practices globally.

He noted that the use of MFM system for bunkering in the Port of Singapore will not only boost transparency in the bunkering process, but also enhance operational efficiency and improve the productivity of the whole industry.

Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA)'s CEO, Andrew Tan said, "To safeguard Singapore's reputation as a top bunkering port in the world, we are taking the lead in being the first to mandate the use of mass flow meters. It is a significant milestone for the bunkering industry in Singapore and it will strengthen our position in the long term as a reliable and trusted port for bunkering operations."
