ClassNK Consulting Service (NKCS), a subsidiary of Tokyo-based classification society ClassNK, has officially launched its Bunker Fuel Oil Analysis Service.

“It is important to understand the properties of bunker fuel oil in order to ensure the safety of vessels and to prevent equipment failure. NKCS’s Bunker Fuel Oil Analysis Service provides an oil analysis report for the properties of bunker fuel oil based on the ISO8217 Standard with advice such as oil heating and purification,” ClassNK informed.

Testing laboratories are located worldwide in Singapore, UAE, UK, and USA. After sampled oil is received at the nearest laboratory from each ship, an analysis report will be provided by email and online within 48 hours, the classification society said.

In addition to analysis based on the ISO8217 Standard, the Bunker Fuel Oil Analysis Service also provides special analysis services based on request, such as asphaltene analysis, measuring the degree of oxidation, analysis using FCA (Fuel Combustion Analyser), GC-MS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry) and FT-IR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy).
