Gibraltar: Cepsa Begins To Use Mass Flow Meters For Bunker Supply

Cepsa is one of the first companies in Europe and the Mediterranean to use this technology

 

Using mass flow meters for ships which is a new more precise measurement system that guarantees the quantity of product supplied, Cepsa has started its bunker supply activity in the Port of Gibraltar. Based on the Coriolis affect, the new technology enables the amount of fuel supplied to be determined by mass, thus avoiding calculations being made from measurements by volume corrected by its density and temperature, in addition to eliminating the possible effect that the presence of air in the flow could have.

Cepsa will begin its operations in the Port of Gibraltar with the newly-built ship Green Cadiz, which has this technology mounted. The mass flow measuring system is anticipated to be extended, to other ports where the company operates.

Being the only supplier with this new measurement technology, now on both side of the bay of Algeciras, Cepsa strengthens its leadership in the Strait of Gibraltar. It is also one of the first companies in Europe and the Mediterranean with this new technology.

Fully owned by the Mubadala Investment Company, Cepsa is an energy group that employs more than 10,000 professionals and operates at every stage of the hydrocarbon value chain. PWKD19062017
