The 30 deepwell gas pumps might be delivered between August 2022 and January 2024.
This is one of Svanehøj’s largest LNG fuel-related orders thus far. It can be the second LNG fuel pump techniques order that Jiangsu New Yangzi Shipbuilding has placed with Svanehøj within the last 12 months. In July 2021, Svanehøj signed a contract to supply deepwell pumps for 10 dual-fuel LNG container vessels (15 000 TEU).
Svanehøj quadrupled gross sales of its patented deepwell fuel pumps in 2021, and says there are many indications that sales could increase even further in 2022.
“Until a few years ago, the use of LNG as a marine fuel was limited to LNG carriers and smaller ships. But we are actually seeing a sharp enhance in gasoline pump orders for deep sea vessels corresponding to container ships and car carriers,” said Johnny Houmann, chief gross sales officer at Svanehøj. “We have been chosen because the provider of gasoline pump systems for over 50% of the dual-fuel LNG container vessels ordered globally in 2020–21. And we purpose to extend our market share further in the coming years.”
