Danish pump manufacturer Svanehøj has launched its newly developed environmentally friendly Flow Control system, which automates the management of electric cargo pumps on tankers.
The launch of the newly developed software-based control system follows a successful test in collaboration with the Swedish transport firm Furetank on the P&C tanker Fure Ven. The 18,000 DWT vessel was inbuilt 2019 as certainly one of Furetank’s V-Series, a new generation of climate-smart P&C tankers.
Svanehøj’s system makes it faster, simpler, and more efficient to operate electric cargo pumps. It ensures an optimal changeover between tanks and pumps in parallel, lowering the time wanted for cargo discharge by up to 20% because the system will mechanically function on the optimum duty level. It permits the operator to take full control of the pumps, simplifying the whole cargo discharge operation without putting in any further hardware.
Fure Ven is among the many first vessels at Furetank to have electrical cargo pumps installed. เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำประปาราคา has recorded a 25% discount in energy and gasoline consumption in relation to cargo discharge operations compared to vessels within the fleet which have hydraulic pumps.
