The Danish pump specialist Svanehøj expects to publish an all-time excessive order consumption of DKK750 million–DKK800 million for 2021, up 50% on the company’s earlier report set in 2014.
2021 has been a record year for Svanehøj.
Svanehøj’s patented เพรสเชอร์เกจวัดแรงดันน้ำ is certainly one of the primary development drivers. The pump was launched to the market in 2015 and will account for nearly 30% of complete orders in 2021.
CEO Søren Kringelholt Nielsen said the company’s gasoline pump gross sales quadrupled on 2020, with new orders spread broadly across sectors.
“We see a major enhance in orders of fuel pump systems for LNG-fuelled boxships, cruise ships and PCTC vessels. Furthermore, we have obtained a really large number of orders for LPG carriers, the place we provide pump techniques for both cargo and fuel,” mentioned Kringelholt Nielsen.
During 2021, Svanehøj secured two vital orders from Samsung Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering for LNG gasoline pump techniques for 22 Ultra Large Container Vessels. And just lately, Svanehøj signed an agreement with a Japanese FGSS provider on gasoline pumps for six LNG-fuelled Pure Care and Truck Carriers.
“We see clear indications that many of the ships to be constructed within the coming years might be constructed to run on LNG. Therefore, we expect further progress in this phase,” mentioned Kringelholt Nielsen.
“At the identical time, a marketplace for new fuel sorts will emerge, driven by the large-scale investments in Power-to-X. We have already taken this into account with our fuel pump, which is totally suitable with e-fuels similar to green ammonia and methanol. In this manner, we tackle shipowners’ uncertainty with a future-proof pump solution. Regardless of the propellant,” mentioned Kringelholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj has began 2022 with a new strategy and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (US$152 million) by 2026. In addition to gas pumps for LNG, LPG and future artificial e-fuels, Svanehøj sees nice potential in creating pump options for the infrastructure to be constructed around Power-to-X and carbon capture and storage (CCS).
