New eLearning course - Fuel Management
Fuel Management is the handling of fuel from the moment it crosses the bulwark until it is burned. Doing it right is essential for the safe and efficient operation of the ship.
If a diesel engine is supplied with dirty fuel it starts to wear out faster, becomes less efficient and eventually will not start.
There have been an increasing number of cases where ships were stopped for significant periods, unable to safely run their main or auxiliary engines. Poor fuel management cost the ship owners millions of dollars in damage and downtime each year.

'I would like to express my appreciation re today’s training. It was very well structured, planned and executed. It was great to see the level of involvement for all the students throughout the session. There was a lot of valuable information which made experienced guys review our processes related to our own and our service engineers’ safety.
