Why are Sampling
Jobs Important?

Under MARPOL Annex VI, shipowners must collect samples of fuel oil delivered to ships. Shipowners and operators collect properly drawn and witnessed samples to get reliable and accurate testing information.

To facilitate the collection of “good fuel samples,” The Viswa Group provides sampling jobs to ensure accurate sampling of various products.

The Value of Sampling Jobs

Sampling is a process in which a single collection of material is taken from a large system. A series of analysis is then performed on the collected sample and conclusions are made of the large system. To make an educated conclusion about a large system from observations, we need a good sample that accurately represents the large system.

  • Ensure that fuel oil, water, foam, etc., onboard meet
