Svanehøj Invests In A Growing Gas Market: Develops New Fuel Pump For LNG-Powered Ships

With the launch of a completely new pump design for LNG, Svanehøj becomes the first supplier on the marine market to offer both deepwell pumps and submerged pumps for electric fuel systems. The aim is to gain a larger share of the attractive and strongly growing LNG market.

The demand for liquefied gas is increasing, and LNG-powered ships are being ordered like never before. Therefore, Svanehøj is now building on the growth of recent years within liquefied gas solutions with an ambitious investment in a new electric submerged pump design for LNG-powered ships. The new CS pump (the name is an abbreviation of cryogenic submerged) is presented this week at the SMM trade fair in Hamburg.

In recent years, Svanehøj has positioned itself strongly as a leading supplier of long-shaft deepwell pumps, where the motor and other electrical parts are located on deck. The CS pump is a submerged pump that is installed at the bottom of the tank. This makes Svanehøj the first supplier in the industry to offer both deepwell pumps and submerged pumps for electric fuel systems.

“With the new CS pump for LNG, we are strengthening our position in a rapidly developing market. We will differentiate ourselves from our competitors by offering advice that is neutral in terms of technology selection. In this way, we want to ensure that the customer always gets the solution that best suits the specific project,” says Johnny Houmann, Director of Sales & Projects at Svanehøj.
