CBO, a Brazil-based operator of offshore support vessels, has installed a Fueltrax Electronic Fuel Monitoring System (EFMS) on its Platform Supply Vessel, ‘CBO Anna Gabriella.’

CBO operates a fleet of 32 offshore support vessels in the main Brazilian oil basins and the North Sea. The CBO Anna Gabriella was delivered in 2006, where she commenced work for Petrobras. The company has cited embracing new technology and enhancing efforts of showing greater operational efficiency on board as reasons that led them to choose the Fueltrax EFMS solution.

With the addition of Fueltrax EFMS, the CBO Anna Gabriella will gain a significant digital upgrade, including new visibility into vessel activities and fuel costs from direct measurement of fuel consumption. This is combined with independent vessel tracking and shore-based data delivery service for 100% of fuel data collected.

Through new access to Fuelnet – the secure logistics web portal used to analyse Fueltrax data – CBO will track day-to-day operations from live updates for all fuel activities performed out at sea. Future charterers of CBO Anna Gabriella will benefit from this new insight and data.

Each Fueltrax EFMS installation includes all fuel measurement devices, edge-computing systems, unintrusive and independent communications modules, system commissioning, sea trials, and crew training.

Eduardo Marquez, CBO Technical Manager, said: “The installation of Fueltrax system onboard our vessels will allow not only CBO but also our clients an accurate and real-time monitoring of fuel consumption and transfers. This is the first of many systems to be installed in our fleet, and this will bring additional transparency to our operations and work as a valuable tool for supporting fuel consumption reduction, in line with our ESG policy and providing additional value to our clients.”

JP Ambler, Lead Sales Engineer, Fueltrax, said: “The Fueltrax installation onboard the CBO Anna Gabriella vessel demonstrates CBO’s commitment to transparent operations for their clients. Our system will provide the necessary tools to enable powerful optimisation decisions. Fueltrax’s remote monitoring and support capabilities, along with our 100% installation success rate, back up our ‘no-fail’ promise to new Fueltrax users. We are excited to build this new partnership with CBO and look forward to assisting them in providing maximum value with our product.”
