About Us

Our team of experienced Surveyors and office staff form a unity who feel strongly about delivering the best service in the Marine Industry to our clients.
We are well known in the Bunker world and are only working on the receiving side.
We at Independent Marine Surveys offer independent and accurate quantity measurement service for marine fuels oil bunkers.
We provide complete documentation for each survey to support any claims to quality disputes.
We also carry out pre-delivery tank measurements on both the bunker tanker and the receiving vessel.
Our clients choose us because we are one of the few bunker survey companies in ARAG (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerpen and Gent)area who are not doing BQS for suppliers.
All our clients are only charterers and owners from sea going vessels.
This is the principle of Independent Marine Surveys
Considering the present shot deliveries during the bunkering operations, we deem this type of survey absolutely necessary, in order to make sure that the quantities as mentioned on the Bunker Delivery Notes (BDN) are true and correct.
Before and after bunkering our Surveyors sound/calculate the contents of the cargo tanks of the delivering tank barge, taking the actual temperature of the oil into consideration.
The difference between the contents before and after bunkering is the exact quantity of oil supplied to the sea going vessel and must be in line with the supplied quantity as mentioned on the BDN.
