Danish pump producer 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 management system follows a profitable check in collaboration with the Swedish delivery firm Furetank on the P&C tanker Fure Ven. The 18,000 DWT vessel was in-built 2019 as one of Furetank’s V-Series, a brand new generation of climate-smart P&C tankers.
Svanehøj’s system makes it quicker, easier, and extra environment friendly to operate electrical cargo pumps. It ensures an optimal changeover between tanks and pumps in parallel, lowering the time wanted for cargo discharge by as much as 20% as a outcome of the system will routinely function at the optimal obligation level. It permits the operator to take full control of the pumps, simplifying the whole cargo discharge operation without putting in any additional hardware.
Fure Ven is among the many first vessels at Furetank to have electric cargo pumps put in. pressure gauge 10 bar has recorded a 25% reduction in energy and fuel consumption in relation to cargo discharge operations in comparison with vessels within the fleet that have hydraulic pumps.
