New VLEC contracts: Korean shipyards choose Svanehøj deepwell pumps

Following a successful delivery of deepwell pump systems for six Very Large Ethane Carriers (VLEC), Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have signed Svanehøj as the pump system supplier for an additional four vessels.

– In 2019, we were chosen by SHI and HHI as the supplier of pumps for the first six of a new type of VLEC, which is bigger and more complex than previous ethane carriers. We have now received orders from the two shipyards for an additional four VLECs. It is a recognition of our technology and expertise that we are enormously proud of, said Johnny Houmann, Sales Director at Svanehøj.

The two orders represent a total value of more than 7.5 million USD and will be delivered in Q3 2021. Each ship set consists of eight DW cargo pumps, two DW fuel pumps and four DW spray pumps.
