Norway's Framo AS said it has won a contract to deliver pump systems (sea water lift pumps) for a Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) for the ship owner GasLog at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard.
Delivery of the systems is scheduled for August 2018. Thorbjørn Vågenes, Director Oil and Gas pumping systems at Framo, said in a statement, “This represents acknowledgement of our ultra-compact pump concept that is now gaining a solid position on the FSRU market.”
Recetnly Framo has signed a contract with Höegh LNG
for the delivery of pumping systems to their new FSRU. The contract is for one unit, with option for three more units which are currently being built at Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea.
Framo said its pumps provide significant savings on space and eliminate the need for a separate pump room onboard the ship.
