EU patent for FuelTrax

Nautical Control Solutions (NCS) has announced that its FuelTrax marine fuel management system has been granted patent protection by the European Patent Office (EPO).

The onboard, ABS type approved FuelTrax system monitors fuel flow, captures fuel burn rates, can measure and alarm fuel tank levels, and is used to prove bunker quantities. It gathers a broad range of fuel-related information and presents it to captains, operations, maintenance, and fleet management so that problem areas and inefficient activities are identified.

NCS, which is headquartered in Houston (Texas), was granted its first patent for FuelTrax in the United States in 2006, and announced a Canadian patent last year.

The EU patent for ‘Apparatus and Method for Fuel Measurement and Accountability’ includes nine European countries: United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, and Greece.

“Under the EPO we selected the countries we believe will offer us the largest blanket of protection within the European community,” said Anthony George, CEO of NCS.

“It is important to have these protections in place as we continue to invest in our product offerings and expand globally to serve a growing user community.”
