Hamworthy Delivers Pumps for Four VLCCs

Monday, January 10, 2011

Fluid-handling specialist Hamworthy has signed a contract with marine equipment purchaser Hua Hai Engineering & Equipment Co., Ltd to deliver pump room systems for installation on four very large crude carriers (VLCCs) to be constructed in China.

The ships, which will be built for CSC Nanjing Tanker Co., Ltd (NJTC) at Guangzhou Longxue Shipbuilding Co., Ltd, follow on from 10 previous VLCCs contracted by the same owner at Jiangnan Shipyard and Bohai Shipyard, all of which are being equipped with pump room systems from Hamworthy.

“This contract was won due to the proven technical ability of our equipment on previously built VLCCs,” said Terje Bjornemo, Hamworthy Pump Room Systems Sales Director.

Bjornemo said that the scope of delivery would include three 2500kW steam turbine-driven heavy duty cargo pumps in superior Ni-Al-Bronze material and two ballast pumps featuring the same material and one stripping pump. The cargo pumps would be supported by a genuine vacuum stripping system. All systems would be controlled by a PLC-based Hamworthy cargo control system.

A significant factor in the decision to specify a Hamworthy system was the group’s global support and service network, Mr Bjornemo said.
