Bunker Survey (ROB)
Bunker Survey (ROB) is usually carried out when delivering or re-delivering a ship, under a time charter agreement. So, it is most of the time carried out in conjunction with an On Hire / Off Hire Condition Survey.
It is a documented evidence of the actual quantities of Fuel Oil and Diesel Oil at a given point in time and prevents later claims and disputes.
The report includes the statement of bunkers remaining on board (HSFO, LSFO, MGO or MDO) at the time of sounding, an estimation of the consumption from sounding to re-delivery or from delivery and a final quantity certificate.
Along with bunker survey, it is very usual to require On Hire / Off Hire Condition Survey. Condition survey is focused in ship’s cargo spaces, holds, hatch covers, decks, weather-tight, cranes, etc. But also can concern documentation, class certificates, engine spaces, performance reports, structural and watertight integrity, system’s installations, operation condition and grade of maintenance.
