Huge cargo pump order for LNG-/LBG-fueled tankers


Svanehøj marks the end of a remarkable 2022 with a significant order of 98 electric cargo pumps for seven LNG-/LBG-fueled chemical & product tankers. The client is a joint venture between Furetank and Algoma.


The joint-venture company, FureBear, has placed a significant order with Svanehøj, which will supply a scope of 14 electric deepwell cargo pumps for seven LNG/LBG-fueled ice class 1A chemical & product tankers (17,999 DTW). The total order amounts to 98 pumps 


The FureBear vessels are built according to the same design as the tankers in Furetank's Vinga series, which has achieved the best EEDI score in its segment worldwide. The Vinga design is developed by Furetank in close collaboration with FKAB Marine Design and several onboard system suppliers, including Svanehøj.


By installing Svanehøj's electric DL pump system, Furetank has reduced fuel consumption during cargo discharge by 25% and the audible sound  during cargo operations by 73-85%.


For Svanehøj, this significant order ensures a successful ending to a remarkable 2022 in which Svanehøj Danmark has made substantial progress on several parameters. The revenue reaches an all-time high due to a growth of around 70%, while at the same time, Svanehøj maintains an exceptionally high order intake of more than DKK 700 million (≈ USD 100 million). During the year, the staff has grown from 180 employees to over 290.
