Introducing a complete high-pressure marine pump unit for LNG fuel
As demand for LNG-fueled vessels remains high, Svanehøj can now offer a high-pressure pump solution for two-stroke engines – a compact unit with three combined cold ends designed for optimal flow and longer service intervals.
Drawing from extensive expertise in cryogenic solutions, Svanehøj has developed a high-pressure fuel pump unit with a drive system and three combined cold ends designed for optimal flow and longer service intervals. The new solution, called “HPP Triplex Unit”, was pre-launched at Kormarine in Busan, Korea, on the 24th of October.
The HPP Triplex Unit is designed to meet the maritime industry's demands for leak-free critical components with a long service life. The cold end includes an innovative low-pressure sealing arrangement that reduces friction, ensuring longer service intervals. To further reduce maintenance costs, Svanehøj has developed a cartridge solution for swift sealing replacement. To ensure high efficiency and low-pressure drop, Svanehøj has also incorporated a new inlet valve design.
In recent years, Svanehøj has invested significantly in new products and services for the LNG segment, including a new submerged fuel pump, launched in 2022, and the acquisition of the US-based specialist in service and overhaul of LNG pumps, Complete Cryogenic Services (CCS), in 2023.
- In the ideal scenario, all ships would operate on carbon-free fuels tomorrow. However, it will take several years to establish an infrastructure to meet the need for liquid renewable energy. Transition fuels are essential for a successful energy transition, and natural gas is by far the best option – with significant environmental benefits. In Svanehøj, we are committed to continuously innovating our product portfolio designs and service models at the lowest possible environmental lifecycle cost, says Søren Kringelholt Nielsen, CEO at Svanehøj.
