Bunkering Operation at ARA ( Amsterdam-Ryotterdam- Antwerp)
Posted: Sun Oct 20, 2019 4:48 am
As I see most of active users work around the Canada. I'm working in imo type 2 chemical tanker due to nature of my vessel type. We stop by ARA ports a lot. Therefore we carry out most of bunkering operations within these ports. Their fuel quality is fine however they cut around %10 of fuel at the beginning especially almost every MGO bunkering operations. Then we start negotiation with bunker to get missing fuel back as much as we can. I hate it every time as 3rd engineer, i embark barge and before the starting operation to take notes about their tank levels ( they allow only check digital leveldatics). Is there anybody deal with same problem at ARA ports.
