Meet MTS Bauke, a Dutch-built barge from Waterhuizen (Groningen), crafted in 2010.
She's well maintained by father and son Langius and this year's success led to their investment and commitment to prioritize safety and wellbeing of personnel and others. There is where we step in! Yesterday, we proudly delivered the Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valves - a solution ensuring gas-tight, precise, independent, and representative inspections.
Grateful to the Klaas Langius family for choosing our product!
Today we witnessed the final touches on another new chemical tanker MTS IQ at BREKO Shipbuilding & Repair / PSI Piping. She is gearing up for her inaugural trial run, getting ready for her entry in the inland shipping industry.
Grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this remarkable project!
Last Friday, we had the honor of witnessing the official welcome of MTS Stellar into the Universe Shipping B.V. fleet at dolderman!
With its remarkable 9KM3 load capacity, this vessel stands as a serious addition to the inland shipping industry. From the expansive wheelhouse, engine room, and living area to the enormous deck, every aspect is just impressive. Maybe the Tank-Eye valves pale into insignificance, but they’re crucial for the safety and well being of the crew and stakeholders on board during measuring and sampling inspections.
Many thanks for the assignment, the invitation and our sincere wishes for the crew’s safe and successful voyages ahead!
Special delivery for MTS Eenhoorn!

Great to be a part, thank you!
Another challenging and most of all an instructive week!
Bosman Shipping Group’s pro-active commitment to a Goal Zero and sustainable fleet is inspiring. They’ve ordered the full package for MTS Patricia. With green light from the gas doctor, we started the installation of the Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock Valves.
How the process works?
Step 1: drill holes on exact the right spot
Step 2: sanding off the paint
Step 3: weld the flanges on the bulkheads
Step 4: Assemble the installation with gaskets, bolts and nuts
Step 5: Kallibra determines the new ullage point and produces new tanktables
The Vapour Lock Valve is specially designed for closed measure and sample inspections. These inspections are now emission-free, accurate, representative, independent and helping the industry complying with the Green Deal strategy.
Many thanks for the assignment and we’re proud to be a part of that journey.
🚢 Ensuring Health, Safety, and Excellence! 🚢
As a result of our remarkable deal with DARI / Volharding Group during the Maritime Industry, the first installation is a fact!
Last week MTS Bonaire was scheduled for a Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock installation. After a few hours of drilling, sanding, welding and assembling the Bonaire was ready to go. With the Vapour Lock Valve all fully closed inspections like measuring gas, OBQ, ROB, ullage, temperature, free-water and multi-level sampling are possible. Pressurised dangerous and unhealthy emissions stay onboard for good!
With these investments DARI / Volharding Group clearly emphasizes the importance of crew health and safety, along with technological advancements.
Many thanks for the assignment and collaboration!
We’re delighted to share that inland tanker, MTS Noordkaap from Noordtrans B.V., is now equipped with the Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock Valve. We efficiently used the time during her maintenance at Scheepswerf De Schroef BV.
In one day, we drilled holes, welded the flanges, and assembled the installation on the 12 tank heads. Thanks to Henri Vranken from TankTech MTS Noordkaap is ready to go with new reference points and (ullage) tanktables.
This installation does not only opens all options for closed inspections, but also prioritizes the health and safety of the dedicated crew. With closed inspections, high quality equipment, and a strong commitment to crew well-being, Noordtrans B.V. is setting a new standard for excellence in every voyage.
Thank you for this great assignment and to all stakeholders for making this possible!
Another great week has come to an end! Several installations completed and happy customers as a result, what more do you want?
One of our valued customers added another Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock Valve installation to their fleet. MTS New Orleans from UniBarge B.V. was for maintenance at Scheepswerf Gebroeders Kooiman B.V., for us the ideal moment to jump on board and do our trick.
Another barge helping the industry to a safer and healthier level! Many thanks for the assignment!
It’s always an impressive view when a barge is on dry dock. MTS Commander is preparing herself for class certification at Nieuwenhuijsen Scheepsbouw and is using the opportunity to install Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock Valves.
In a couple of days she’ll be ready for all fully closed inspections:
- Gas measuring: UEL, LEL, Oxygen, Nitrogen etc.
- Quantity measuring: ROB, OBQ, ullage, free water & temperatures
- Sampling: first foot, upper, middle, lower, running & absolute bottom
CLOSED means here: safer, healthier and no more emissions (before and during inspections).
Many thanks for the assignment and enjoy the benefits that the system offers.
We received a call from a happy customer as they established free water underneath their product. Open tape measuring was not allowed, but thanks to the Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valve and the UTI (Ullage, Temperature, Interface) the free water could be fully closed and accurately measured.
If only the radar level gauges were used, no free water would be found which could cause several problems along the chain. And who wants to pay for water?
Next to free water measurements the Vapour Lock Valve gives the following options:
- measuring OBQ, ROB, Ullage and Temperature
- measuring gas (e.g. LEL, UEL, O2, N2 etc)
- multiple level sampling (first foot, upper, middle, lower, running etc.)
Please never hesitate to contact us for more information.
On this sunny day we paid a visit to MTS Astra (Universe Shipping B.V.), which is under construction at dolderman, and run some tests with novel equipment (more on this later).
Maybe not the most exciting picture, but we're proud to be a part of this impressive project.
Many thanks for the assignment!
We’re thrilled to have reached this milestone, and grateful for your support 1000 LinkedIn followers!
For us LinkedIn is an important platform where we not only share our products and successes, but also our view on the future of the industry we work in.
With our knowledge and experience we want to help the Inland Shipping Industry in several ways:
1. A safer and healthier work environment for captain and crew on board
2. Safer, healthier, closed, representative and independent inspections for surveyors

Let’s join forces, start now and focus on the Greendeal!
Exciting News Alert! Tank-Eye B.V. is proud to announce a groundbreaking deal with our valued customer DARI / Volharding Group. During the Maritime Industry event we have successfully agreed on Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valve installations for a fleet of 10 inland tankers!
Vapour Lock Valves ensure emissions and vapours are securely contained onboard during inspections, creating a safer and healthier environment for crew members, surveyors and terminal operators. Thanks to DARI / Volharding Group its unwavering commitment and their continuous investments in these critical areas will create a safer and healthier situation on board of their tankers. Tank-Eye B.V. is honoured to have contributed to this achievement.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to DARI / Volharding Group for their trust in Tank-Eye B.V. Our shared vision for a sustainable maritime industry has laid the foundation for a successful collaboration that drives positive change in the inland shipping industry.
We often mention the emissions involved before and during measuring / sampling inspections. During each open manual measurement and sampling, harmful vapours are emitted into the atmosphere.
In this video we show what happens during a sampling of a light-end product on a normal 20° degrees day. The surveyor is wearing all available PPE’s (Personal Protective Equipment), but still exposed to a several risks. An unhealthy and dangerous situation for crew, surveyors, terminal operators, surrounded area and environment.
Tank-Eye B.V. helps to prevent these unnecessary emissions with the Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valve.
Rijnaarde Global Trading & Logistics BV, hartelijk dank voor de opdracht en het vertrouwen in Tank-Eye B.V.
Wij zijn trots deel te mogen uitmaken van uw steeds veiligere en vergroenende vloot.
In almost every post we mention the emissions involved before and during measuring / sampling.
Before each open measurement and sampling, the pressure in the cargo tanks need to be released into the atmosphere to ensure a safe working situation for the surveyor.
In this video we show what happens when the end of line pressure relief valve with flame resister is opened to release its pressure / emissions / highly concentrated dangerous gasses. An unhealthy and dangerous situation for crew, surveyors, terminal operators, surrounded area and environment.
Tank-Eye B.V. can help to prevent these emissions and unwanted work situations with the Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valve!
UniBarge B.V. is getting closer and closer to a safer / lower emitting fleet and meeting the Green Deal.
MTS Seattle was for maintenance at De Gerlien van Tiem Scheepsreparatie - Nieuwbouw wharf, which was a good moment for the Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valves installation. Want to find out more on our products and its benefits? Follow the link in the comment below.
Many thanks for the assignment and looking forward to the next one!
Another beautiful project at BREKO Shipbuilding & Repair / PSI Piping! This time we served (the new) MTS Groenendaal, which is now fully future proof.

Another beautiful tanker is welcomed to the inland shipping industry. MTS Servus, build by Asto Shipyard, is ready for transporting serious volumes!
This ultimate innovative ship is also ready for all CLOSED inspections (ROB, OBQ, ullage, temperature, free-water, multi-level sampling, gas measurements and additive injections) thanks to the Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valve.
Many thanks for the assignment and we wish MTS Servus countless safe voyages.
UniBarge B.V. can add another barge to their fleet with our Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock Valves. MTS Toronto was at Den Breejen Shipyard for some maintenance, which was the perfect timing to update the butterwash hatches.
She’s now ready for, amongst others, representative and independent closed sampling inspections. Once she’s due for class certification the Vapour Lock Valves shall be re-installed at the tankhead, where they’ll function as reference point also for representative and independent closed measuring inspections.
Thanks for the assignment!
VARO Energy's course is more than clear! Due to continuous investments in their time charter fleet, they increase safety, reduce emissions and make closed independant inspections possible again.
That is where Tank-Eye B.V. steps in, because this time it was MTS Amy’s (Duraship) turn to receive Tank-Eye Vapour Lock Valves. Fortunately for us, she moored very close to our office in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht for maintenance. During the maintenance we performed the installation. The operation went smooth and the weather was perfect, we can get used to this!
If you seek more information, never hesitate to reach out to us.
As a result of their continual investment in their fleet, Benjamin Hoeykens has been able to increase safety measures, reduce emissions, and enable closed sampling, closed gas measurements and closed additives injections. Last week, the MTS Tripolis owned by Benjamin Hoeykens underwent maintenance at Scheepswerf de schroef. This was an ideal opportunity to install Tank-Eye's Vapour Lock Valves on the butterwash hatch.
If you are interested in learning more about our services, please do not hesitate to contact Team Tank-Eye.
In december 2022 we delivered our Tank-Eye vapour lock valves to new build barge MTS Bolero and now she’s ready to be welcomed in the industry. Impressive to see such a transformation in just a couple of months! We’re happy to be a small part of this massive project, Great job BREKO Shipbuilding & Repair / PSI Piping!
We wish Family the Vries (Bolero Shipping) countless safe voyages!
We’re already expanding!
High and fast service is one of our top priorities! Our business is growing and we want to keep-up with the market demands.
Thanks to our partner Dockmarks Signs we’re now the proud owner of 2 identical vans! Again a great and accurate job.
Would you like to find out more regarding our service and products, please never hesitate to contact us.
And another happy customer left the jetty! This time we served MTS Virginia from AMS Barging in the #portofantwerp.
AMS Barging was looking for the best closed sampling system and in close liaise with their new customer and surveyor, Tank-Eye closed systems was preferred and selected!
We installed Tank-Eye B.V. Vapour Lock Valves on the 8 butterwash hatches, job done (we thought). But here is some news, MTS Virginia will significantly increase in size and number cargo tanks (8 —> 12). This exercise is scheduled in April ‘23 and Tank-Eye will then:
- re-install the 8 Vapour Lock Valves from butterwash hatch to the tank head
- install 4 new Vapour Lock Valves on the new tank heads
After calibrations by Henri Vranken from TankTech B.V.,
the valves shall function as:
- reference point for closed gauging (ullage, temperature, free water, OBQ and ROB)
- sample point for closed multi-level sampling (first foot, absolute bottom, upper, middle, lower and or running)
- point for closed gas measurements (explosion limits,)
- point for closed additive injection
MTS Virginia will be a pioneer in the industry and we wish them many safe and closed voyages. Lots of success with the expansion in April where we'll meet again!

Tank-Eye B.V. is moving!
Welcome for a cup of coffee as of 7th of February.
#Moving #Forward #TankEye #NewOffice #DeNoordkade
And another one! VARO Energy invested in their second time charter, ‘MTS South Carolina’, by installing the closed systems from Tank-Eye B.V.
Again a strong message that safety is on top of VARO Energy’s agenda, creating a healthier environment at the same time. No more harmful emissions from pressurized cargo tanks before and during certain inspections is what the industry needs! Also, the inspections become more valuable again.
This time it was a home game as Tank-Eye B.V. picked up the butterwash hatches at the shipyard in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, installed the closed systems, pressure tested each installation and returned them all within 4 hours.
A big THANK YOU for the assignment and cooperation between VARO Energy, BFT Tanker Logistics, Wijgaart Shipping BV and Tank-Eye B.V.
Safety is one of VARO Energy’s top priorities. During their search to create an even more, safer & healthier work environment on board, eliminate emissions and improve the sampling process at the same time, they have found a solution!
VARO Energy invested in one of their time charters, ‘MTS Manhattan’, by installing the Tank-Eye closed systems on the butterwash hatches. The system will help VARO Energy to achieve its challenges and goals.
Once MTS Manhattan reported gas-free after a ATM visit; Tank-Eye B.V. picked up the butterwash hatches, installed the closed systems, pressure tested each installation and returned them all within 3 hours.
A fantastic and smooth cooperation between VARO Energy, UniBarge B.V., DARI and Tank-Eye B.V.
What a great deal just before the end of the year!
Bosman Shipping Group has ordered ‘Tank-Eye closed systems’ for 7 inland tankers (new-build and existing), which will be installed in 2023.
This is a very strong message that they want to change their fleet for once and for all. A safer work environment for personnel & stakeholders and less emissions into the environment where key to start this change. But the system offers much more; representative closed multi-level sampling, closed manual measurements, closed emptiness inspections, closed gas measurements and closed additive injections.
The Bosman Shipping Group fleet will be ready for the future when it is completely forbidden to open cargo tanks.
Many thanks for this assignment and we’re looking forward to a long-term cooperation.
Today we delivered an important package at BREKO Shipbuilding & Repair / PSI Piping for new build barge MTS Bolero.
The package consisted of new Tank-Eye Vapor Lock Valves and all the stainless steel parts that are needed for the fully closed sampling & measuring system. BREKO Shipbuilding & Repair / PSI Piping takes over from here and controls the full installation on the tank-heads.
When operational, the cargo tanks of MTS Bolero can remain closed and under pressure during all closed inspections.
We (Tank-Eye B.V.) are thankful for the assignment and wish the shippers many safe journey's!
UniBarge B.V. is keeping us busy! During some maintenance on MTS Boston at Scheepswerf Gebroeders Kooiman B.V., we took our chance and installed Tank-Eye closed systems on the butterwash hatches within 1 day. Thanks to the cooperation with the shipper it was a smooth operation. The hatches were delivered on the jetty and from there they were lifted on board by crane.
MTS Boston helps creating a safer, healthier work situation for all stakeholders involved and reducing emission as she’s ready for CLOSED: multi level sampling / dipping (check on emptiness) / temperatures / gas measurements / additive injection. Just before next class certification the vapor lock valves will easily move to the tank-head where they also function as new reference point. This also enables closed manual ullage measurements! Cargo tanks can remain closed, while all inspections are possible.
What a great assignment at Asto Shipyard! Two new build ships, MTS Sophia and MTS Osiris, have installed Tank-Eye closed systems on the tank head. It is centrally placed as new reference point. Both ships are fully future proof and ready for safe, closed and zero emission inspections: closed dipping (OBQ/ROB)- closed measuring - closed temperatures - closed free water measuring - closed any level sampling - closed gas measurements - closed additive injections. Ship crew, surveyors and terminal operators are no more exposed to dangerous gasses.
Tank-Eye B.V. wishes them many safe inland water miles! Also interested what it can do for you? Do not hesitate and contact us.
Another respectable barge was installed with Tank-Eye closed systems.
MTS Jowi has now 18 new butterwash hatches, which are fit for CLOSED sampling / dipping (OBQ & ROB) / temperatures / gas measurements / additive injection. Especially dipping the cargo tanks before loading or after discharge Fuel Oil is an essential part of a quantity survey.
Many thanks to UniBarge B.V. for this great assignment and helping the inland tanker industry to a safer and lower emitting environment.
It was the perfect sunny weekend to put inland shipping in the spotlight during the "Dag van de Binnenvaart" held on Saturday, 12 November in various areas in the Netherlands. Also the Maritime Week took place last week, focusing on sharing knowledge about developments and innovations within the maritime sector.
One of the important topics for both this week and for inland shipping is sustainability. Stricter rules and sustainable development goals are also affecting the inland shipping industry. That is why we created Tank-Eye closed systems, which enables closed, but representative multi-level sampling and more inspections for inland tankers in a sustainable manner.
Learn how we can help you. Contact us via email@example.com or call +31 (0)10 322 51 50.
Some photos of MTS Montreal that is part of the modern fleet of UniBarge B.V.. MTS Montreal is one of the first barges on which we have installed the Tank-Eye closed systems.
This beautiful barge is the very FIRST, which is now ready for all possible closed inspections in a safe and sustainable manner. TankTech B.V. calibrated the new reference points, allowing official ullage measurements.
