Bunker Survey

By GSS Ops Team 21 January, Monday

There are 2 groups of bunker survey software covering shore, ship and barge-to-ship calculations:
in US customary units and in Metric units.

Calculations in US customary units for the shore, ship's tanks and barge-to-ship transfer are covered by the program Bunker US.

Calculations in Metric units for the shore, ship's tanks and barge-to-ship transfer are covered by the program Bunker EU.

Both the program Bunker US which calculates in US customary units and the program Bunker EU have the same list of cargo operations as shown on the picture below: Blog You can select either to calculate on basis of ASTM D1250-1980 or as per ASTM D1250-2004 which was re-approved in 2008 and then in 2013: Blog For your convenience in Bunker EU you can use a built-in interpolation calculator of volumes in Metric units allowing to take into account simultaneously product level (ullage or innage) and the trim or list correction: Blog In Bunker US you can use a built-in interpolation calculator of volumes either in Metric units or in US customary units: Blog To save your time you can select a standard text for each cargo operation and a standard list of tests either for IFO or MDO as showm on the pictures below: Blog Blog When filling in your shore tank report you can select the shell material and specify whether the shore tank is insulated or not, whether measurements were made by the tape measure or by the tank radar. These selected options will be taken into account in calculation of shrinkage factors for the shell of the shore tank and the shrinkage factor for the tape measure.
