Aux engine consumption in port when ship is idle about 2.6mt per day plus 0. 2mt per day MGO. Consumption when all cranes working about 5.5mt per 24 hrs.
additional bunkers used when ballasting / changing ballast.
 
All fuel normally consumed is 380cst HFO.
HFO ISO 8217:2010 (e) RMG 380 not to contain automotive lub oil or other waste chemical.
MGO ISO 8217:2010(e) designation DMA max 0.1% sulphur.
 
Charterers allowed to stem fuel as per ISO 8217.2005 specs when 2017 or 2010 specs not available provided owners advised in advance .
 
Charterers allowed to stem 180cst HFO in South Africa.
 
Vessel has liberty to burn MGO for manoeuvring in channels, canals, confined waterways, heavy weather, in incinerator etc.
At sea consumption basis good weather days only wind under Beaufort 4 and under Douglas Sea State 3.  No adverse current.
 
Boiler used in port and in cold climates if slow steaming. In port up to boiler consumption up to 3.5mt of IFO per day.
 
Eco speed as a guidance and   WOG
 
About 12.0k on about 23.5mt per day laden/20.5mt per day ballast HFO380 plus 0.2mt per day MGO at sea.
 
For the purpose of this clause, the average speed and average bunker consumption shall be calculated by reference to the observed distance from pilot station to pilot station on the high seas and by reference to periods of 24 hours, from engine full away on departure to engine slow down on arrival. Speed and consumption performance to be assessed on a full voyage basis ie from discharge port to discharge port.
 
Only cases decided by reference to the NYPE charter party form shall be used as legal precedent for any performance claims.
 
The average speed and consumption is to be assessed in good weather conditions only, which is defined as under Beaufort Scale Four, under Douglas Sea State Three  and always excluding any time during which
(i) reduction of speed is necessary for safety due to navigation in congested waters or during poor visibility;
(ii) any periods when vessel is ballasting/de-ballasting or during cleaning of cargo holds ;
(iii) under influence of tidal streams and/or currents;
(iv) when vessel is manoeuvring within harbour, inland waters, channels, where slow speed is required due to national/international and local regulations and all times when pilot is on board;
(v) when vessel is following/proceeding in convoy, using escorts, or following instructions of underwriters, government of nation under whose flag the vessel sails, security council of the united nations or other supranational body when navigating in pirate infested areas.
(vi)Favourable currents shall not be taken into account when calculating vessel's performance.
