Hamworthy Pumps aims to to regain its position among the leading suppliers of pump room systems. This will be done in a new powerful alliance with Hoyer Motors as supplier of electrical drive systems.
The new alliance has already resulted in orders for pump room systems for three large tankers, with an option for a fourth. Two of the ships – both Aframax-size crude oil tankers – are being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries for the Finnish oil refiner Neste. The third – a 152,000 DWT DP2 shuttle tanker – is being built at COSCO Zhoushan Shipyard for Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers of Norway.
“With these orders, we send the message that we have the expertise and the setup to deliver the customized pumping solutions that the market demands,” says Terje Bjornemo, Director, Pump Room Systems at Hamworthy Pumps.
The story of the alliance with Hoyer and the pump room system-orders for Neste- and Knutsen shuttle tankers has been featured in several international marine and offshore media.
