Hamworthy Lands 11-vessel China Order

Press Release
Friday, May 20, 2011

Hamworthy has won a contract to supply pump room systems for 11 vessels to be delivered to the China Shipping Group (CSG).

The first three systems are destined for installation on three CSG 112,000 dwt aframax newbuildings, to be constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Company (DSIC). The remaining eight systems are to be supplied to product carriers being built at Guangzhou Shipyard International, (GSI). 

All 11 systems include three cargo pumps and two ballast pumps, which have been cast at Hamworthy’s manufacturing plant in Singapore in superior Ni-Al-Bronze material.

Terje Bjørnemo, Hamworthy global sales director for pump room systems said: “We previously delivered pump room systems for seventeen 42,000 dwt tankers built for CSG at GSI in 2002.

“CSG then continued with a series of four 52,000 dwt oil tankers in 2003, each featuring our pump room systems, and have now started work on a new series of 48,000 dwt vessels.

“The latest contract with CSG is the result of many years of active marketing to both shipyards and owners through Hua Hai Equipment & Engineering Co Ltd, our distributor in China,” he added.

A significant factor in the decision to specify a Hamworthy system was the group’s global support network, Mr Bjørnemo said, where service for all components within the systems is provided at short notice wherever the ships are in operation.
