Welcome at IMSCE
Bunkers are typically the biggest contributor to the operational cost of a ship, with the physical transfer of fuel taking place thousands of miles away from the owners, charterers, operators. As neither the buyer nor the seller is on site to witness the bunker quantity transfer and sampling procedures onboard, any post- delivery investigation on quantity shortage or sampling dispute is usually futile and inconclusive. Physical shortage, protest, demurrage, legal fees, management time and loss of goods will cause inconvenience and stress to all parties concerned and add to the overall expenses.
We have experience with the following surveys :
- ROB surveys
- On- / Offhire surveys
- Sludge surveys
- Bunker quantity surveys with mass flow meter delivery
- STS operations / supervising
Appointing a IMSCE is one of the best ways to be sure if your vessel has received the right amount of fuel.
