RVOS begins fuel monitoring system rollout

Rawabi Vallianz Offshore Services (RVOS) is to outfit its entire fleet of vessels with the FUELTRAX Electronic Fuel Management System (EFMS), to promote fuel usage transparency and improve its emissions tracking capabilities.

RVOS is a joint venture company between Rawabi Holding of Saudi Arabia and Vallianz Holdings Limited of Singapore. It provides offshore support vessels and integrated offshore marine services to support the global energy industry.

RVOS will initially outfit approximately half of its fleet with the EFMS in the first phase, following a trial of the system that concluded in late 2021. Installations have so far been completed in Indonesia, Singapore, Dubai, and Saudi Arabia, with 8 vessels now fully outfitted and 14 more in progress.

The FUELTRAX EFMS measures fuel consumption and transfers on board, taking direct measurements using Coriolis smart meters to measure mass-flow rather than volume. The system measures fuel quality and transmits that data to the FUELTRAX operations centre for real-time monitoring.

“There is no doubt that digitisation in the upstream/offshore arena is here to stay,” said Ahmed Al-Qadeeb, Vice President, Oilfield Services Division for Rawabi Holding Group.

“With that in mind, we wanted to be sure that we partnered with a company that could provide a best-in-class system with the highest accuracy.”

“The impressive quality and stability of the FUELTRAX EFMS, and first-rate response from their support team in Houston made it clear that this was the solution that would meet the high standards of sustained performance set for the RVOS fleet.”
