Huge Cargo Pump Order For LNG-/LBG-Fueled Tankers

The joint-venture company, FureBear, has placed a significant order with Svanehøj, which will supply a scope of 14 electric deep well cargo pumps for seven LNG/LBG-fueled ice class 1A chemical & product tankers (17,999 DTW). The total order amounts to 98 pumps

The FureBear vessels are built according to the same design as the tankers in Furetank’s Vinga series, which has achieved the best EEDI score in its segment worldwide. The Vinga design is developed by Furetank in close collaboration with FKAB Marine Design and several onboard system suppliers, including Svanehøj.

By installing Svanehøj’s electric DL pump system, Furetank has reduced fuel consumption during cargo discharge by 25% and the audible sound during cargo operations by 73-85%.
