NOZZLES & CONNECTIONS
Using the correct nozzles and connections during a bunker can make the difference between a safe and clean fuelling session, and polluting the vessel and sea with a spill if the wrong nozzle or connection are used. We recommend that vessels without camlock fittings use automatic stop nozzles.
Pondoro Yacht Fuel, in association with FUEL 06 & Blue Shield quality assurance is the only diesel provider in the French Riviera to offer customers the option of using automatic stop equipment with truck deliveries. Not only does the likelihood of a spill dramatically reduce, but captains can have the comfort of fully pressing their tanks without stopping short, through fear of overflow from the fillig pipe. NOTE - Use of automatic stop nozzles does not stop fuel leaking out of vents.
If you would like us to make a custom connection system for your vessel we will be happy to do so. All our custom systems that we sell to vessels are tailored to the vessels individual filling point. With a custom system you need never have to embark a trucks hoses on board again! All custom systems have 2 inch camlock females at the shore end allowing the delivering truck to connect easily and safely from the dock.
If you want to use our automatic stop nozzles please specify which one you would like us to bring when you place your order.
