The EFP fuel pump is a classic multistage centrifugal pump made from cryogenic stainless steel with a standard zone 1 marine motor.
Because the pump’s electric motor is located outside the fuel tank, it eliminates excess heat and pressure which may otherwise result in significant energy loss when motors are located inside the fuel tank. Thanks to the unique EFP design, energy and fuel consumption are continuously optimised.
The EFP fuel pump from SVANEHØJ is a reliable pump which was developed in close collaboration with designers of fuel gas systems in order to support environmentally friendly LNG-fuelled engines. The electric marine fuel pump, which can also be used with fuels other than LNG, such as ethane and LPG, has been designed to safeguard a steady, reliable fuel gas supply with fast responses to changes in engine load, ensuring optimised efficiency.

Five-year service interval
The SVANEHØJ ECA fuel pump model EFP is based on proven technology which has been used on gas carriers for decades. It is designed as a hermetically sealed pump without any sophisticated bearings or exotic materials, using standard ball bearings that ensure a long service life. Its service intervals are every 25,000 operating hours, or every five years.
If needed, the motor, bearing, and pump can be easily accessed at any time between regular service dockings – even with gas pressure in the tank. This means that the electric motor, magnetic drive, main bearing, and inner mag drive can be accessed and serviced. Moreover, by activating the foot valve, the pump can be retracted in handy sections of less than one metre, providing unique service possibilities.
- Independent of weather conditions, sloshing, and thermal conditions
- No tank connections below liquid level and no electrical components inside the tank
- Steady, reliable supply of fuel
- Fast response to changes in engine load
- No gas leakage from the tank
- Dual fuel function: The pump can be used with LNG and with other fuel types, such as ethane and LPG
- Pump can be retracted, even with gas in the tank
- Minimised contribution to boil-off gas
