Bunker sampling is important for ensuring safe and reliable vessel operation, compliance with regulations, protection against potential liabilities and efficient resource management.
Quality control: Sampling of the fuel being supplied to a vessel ensures that it meets the required quality standards. The analysis of the fuel sample can detect any potential issues with the fuel, such as contamination or excessive water content, which could cause engine damage and result in costly repairs.
Compliance: Regulatory bodies, such as the International Maritime Organization (IMO), have set standards for fuel quality. Sampling ensures that the fuel being supplied meets these standards, helping vessels remain compliant with regulations.
Risk management: Bunker sampling helps manage the risks associated with fuel quality. Any issues identified during the sampling process can be addressed promptly, reducing the risk of engine failure and associated costs.
Legal protection: In the event of a dispute, bunker samples can be used as evidence in legal proceedings to support a claim for damages or compensation.
Verification of quantity: Sampling of the fuel being supplied can also help verify the quantity of fuel delivered to the vessel, ensuring that the correct amount is delivered and preventing disputes and potential losses due to over or under delivery.
