Multiple Solutions - One Product Family
Marine Fuel Management (MFM) is a multi-level approach to measuring, monitoring, and accounting for fuel onboard a marine vessel or a fleet of vessels with the goals of reducing fuel consumption, increasing operational efficiency, and improving fleet management oversight.
MFM has grown in importance due to the rising costs of marine fuel and increased governmental pressures to reduce pollution generated by the world’s fleets.
In order to be effective, a robust MFM program should provide timely and accurate information for the following:
- Fuel Purchased – Verify fuel bunker quantity and quality
- Fuel Consumed – Track and couple fuel consumption with specific vessel activities, routes and tasks
- Fuel Inventory – Account for fuel Remaining On Board (ROB) and transfers off vessel
- Fuel Monitoring – Monitor activities that impact consumption such as crew behavior and vessel propulsion system health
- Fuel Reporting – Accurately store, report and access MFM data in a timely and convenient fashion
A comprehensive MFM solution allows you to automatically track fuel related activities and associate them with the work performed by your fleet. The right MFM solution will demonstrate how efficient your current operating strategies are and help identify areas that can be improved.
