Barges in the marine industry

  • Cargo and ballast tank monitoring
  • Radar based tank level measurement
  • Proven marine experience

Bunkering barges are fuel supply barges that make bulk deliveries to large sea and river going vessels. Often with no self-propelling capability, they are dependent on tug boats for relocation and operate around ports or in coastal waters. A bunker barge needs to keep close track of cargo content and load/discharge amounts. Equally important, for vessel safety and stability, accurate tank level gauging of ballast tanks is vital during the discharge operations.

The KROHNE CARGOMASTER® is a comprehensive cargo monitoring system, designed for all shipboard tank monitoring, alarm and liquid cargo operations. The system includes KROHNE marine level radar transmitter for tank level and ullage measurement, with integrated inert gas pressure sensors. Other monitored parameters include tank temperatures, vapor pressure and independent high level and overfill alarms. Close to 1000 vessels have been equipped with cargo monitoring systems from KROHNE to date.
