Marine Bunker Fuels are residual fuels. They are leftovers from crude oil that went through fractional distillation and secondary refining processes such as thermal cracking, vis breaking, cat cracking, hydro treating, etc. Even though these residual marine fuels have calorific values, usually within 5% of good distillate fuels, the poor ignition and combustion properties lead to a significant reduction in power generation.
Investing in a Total Fuel Management program can help mitigate the effects of poor ignition and combustion properties, resulting in substantial savings.
Almost all marine bunker fuels mostly consist of heavy residues with a small composition of lighter fractions. The presence of minimal lighter fractions and heavy residues cause delayed ignition and prolonged combustion in the diesel engine cylinders, limiting maximum thermal energy efficiency.
A comprehensive Total Fuel Management package helps extract maximum thermal energy from the fuel and convert it into useful work. The Viswa Group’s Total Fuel Management package consists of detailed analysis to help improve onboard machinery performance.
With unrivaled technical expertise and knowledge of fuels and diesel engine functions, The Viswa Group’s TFM team is well-equipped to assist clients in the Marine Industry.
The Viswa Group introduced the Total Fuel Management program in 2001. With hands-on marine machinery experience of over 30 years, our team will guide the entire TFM effort.
