How ConnectFuel works

ConnectFuel works by attaching your flowmeter to a vessel’s fuel line. The data is retrieved from flowmeters with a digital connection such as Modbus. This sensor accurately measures fuel consumption in real-time. Which, provides valuable fuel consumption data. The data can be used on board and/or pushed to the cloud for use onshore and by other stakeholders.


The flow meter’s accuracy varies in relation to the type already or to be installed. Our hardware is highly precise, providing reliable and trustworthy data. Additionally, our system ensures that the data is not manipulated by ScanReach, providing one truth data direct from the source.

Bridge the gap between High Frequency (HF) sensor data and noon-reported data

With 60% of the worldwide fleet not having digitally connected flow meters, ConnectFuel provides a valuable, quick-to-install solution for accurately measuring fuel consumption. And that with minimal or no out-of-service time for the vessel. ConnectFuel minimises the risk of misreported fuel consumption. And, it provides real-time, accurate fuel consumption data on the vessel or on the shore. Accurate real-time fuel data is one of the fundamental building blocks for accurate vessel performance models and can be passed seamlessly into any VPO platform via our API.
