The TFG Marine Technical Team collaborated with Swiss-based mass flow meter manufacturers, Endress+Hauser Group, in Port Louis, Mauritius. Their mission? To conduct preparatory inspections on the MT Hakkansan, marking a significant step forward for the TFG Marine-GRM (Group Roland Maurel) joint-venture’s bunkering vessels in the region.

What’s so special about the MT Hakkansan? It’s the first to be equipped with a fully calibrated and ISO22192 compliant Mass Flow Meter (MFM), a cutting-edge technology aimed at ensuring accuracy and compliance in fuel measurement.

During their time in Port Louis, the delegation didn’t just stick to the docks. They also engaged with local shipyards to delve into the technical nitty-gritty needed for installing MFMs on additional barges. This move underscores TFG Marine’s firm commitment to expanding the use of this advanced tech throughout their operations in the region and beyon. Moreover, they hope to set an example for others to follow suit, pushing the envelope of innovation in the maritime industry.
