Several new tankers will have ammonia on the cargo list
Svanehøj's multifuel cargo pumps will increasingly handle ammonia on LPG carriers. The transition towards PtX is underway.
Shipowners are busy preparing for a future with carbon-neutral fuels. It significantly impacts Svanehøj's order book, where the share of LPG tankers with ammonia (NH3) on the cargo list is growing.
In 2019, 25% of all Svanehøj's cargo pumps for LPG tankers were prepared for handling ammonia. In 2024, ammonia-ready cargo pumps will make up almost two-thirds of all scheduled tanker orders. A significant change in demand, which Svanehøj is proud to support:
- In Svanehøj, we take pride in being flexible and adapting solutions to suit any challenges a shipowner or a shipyard may encounter. As no one yet knows what types of fuel will become dominant in the future, we at Svanehøj are in a strong position with our multigas technology, which enables a ship to adapt according to developments in the market and changing legislations, says Johnny Houmann, CSO in Svanehøj.
One of Svanehøj's upcoming LPG/ammonia projects is an order from LGE, where Svanehøj will supply ammonia-ready cargo pumps for five VLGCs, which will be built at Hyundai Heavy Industries. The contract includes a total of 40 cargo pumps and 10 booster pumps.
