Fuel and Fuel Cargoes

Fuel and fuel cargoes - bunker issues, fuel cargo quality, loading issues

The shipping industry depends on quality fuels to traverse the world’s oceans. Unfortunately, bunker fuels are frequently a source of quality issues, affecting both the fuel treatment plant on vessels and also resulting in engine-related damage or worse. 

Equally, the transportation of fuels is also a job fraught with complexities and challenges.

In both situations, there’s a single answer; Brookes Bell.
