Fuel Consumption Monitoring in Fishing Vessels with AOM’s CONTOIL® Flowmeters
Aquametro Oil & Marine’s differential fuel flowmeters CONTOIL® with their high accuracy, reliability and compact size make them a ready choice for measuring fuel consumption of fishing vessels.
The leading fishing net manufacturer in India – Garware Technical Fibers, and government organizations researching into fisheries technology require continuous validation of fuel economy against factors such as engine HP, vessel designs, fishing net designs and competitor benchmark testing. The challenge was to accurately measure fuel consumptions of engines under very constraining circumstances of space, fuel flow range and engine vibrations. The challenges were further exacerbated when dealing with engines that allowed air in the return fuel line causing the accuracy to drastically decrease.
Aquametro Oil & Marine systems for fuel consumption along with end-to-end support helped the client measure the consumption despite the challenges. The customers were well pleased with the quality of product, accuracy of system and support provided by the AOM team. Aquametro Oil & Marine continues to be the customers’ first choice for highly accurate and reliable fuel measurement solutions for fishing vessels.
