Monday, 06 February 2012 | 16:00
Georgian bunker supplier JSC Wissol Petroleum Georgia has installed Emerson flowmeters on board its 1,620 cu m bunker tanker ‘Wissol Bunkering’.
JSC Wissol Petroleum said that the digital flowmeters show actual temperature, density, kilogrammes and litres during the entire bunkering procedure. The data is then transferred electronically to port and customs authorities.
The vessel’s pumping rate is 200 tonnes per hour of marine gasoil (MGO).
Wissol Petroleum launched its bunker supply operation under the Wissol Bunkering brand in March 2008.
The company carries out MGO deliveries at the Georgian ports of Batumi, Poti, Kulevi and Supsa. It also supplies marine lubricants as Total Lubmarine distributors in Georgia.
In a statement, Wissol Petroleum said "We are working hard to provide the most optimal and economic solutions for bunkering services in Black sea Georgian ports (Batumi, Poti, Kulevi, Supsa)."
As part of its strategy, the company says that it aims to be able to provide a full range of both IFO and MGO fuels in the near future.
The company also said that it had started bunkering transit vessels around the Poti anchorage area.
