NMC’s Principal Metrologist, Mr Wu Jian, received the 2015 MTI “Innovative Project / Policy Award (Silver)” at an award ceremony on 30 April. The award, received jointly with colleagues from SPRING, was in recognition of the initiative in establishing the world’s first standard on mass flow metering for bunkering.
The mass flow metering initiative was conceptualised to harness and apply the best available technology to enhance best practices for the Singapore’s bunkering industry, thereby consolidating and entrenching Singapore’s position as the world’s top bunkering port for its highly reliable quality bunkers and efficient bunkering services. Compared to the traditional tank gauging method, this new flow meter-based delivery will improve productivity by cutting the average time taken for bunker delivery operation.
A collaboration between SPRING, MPA, A*STAR’s NMC and the industry, this new technology will also enable the bunkering operations to be more transparent and allows accurate measurement of delivered fuel.
