Svanehøj launches management system for cargo offloading

Danish pump producer Svanehøj has launched its newly developed environmentally friendly Flow Control system, which automates the control of electric cargo pumps on tankers.
The launch of the newly developed software-based management system follows a successful check in collaboration with the Swedish transport company Furetank on the P&C tanker Fure Ven. Spoiler was built in 2019 as one of Furetank’s V-Series, a new era of climate-smart P&C tankers.
Svanehøj’s system makes it faster, simpler, and extra environment friendly to function electric cargo pumps. It ensures an optimum changeover between tanks and pumps in parallel, reducing the time wanted for cargo discharge by as a lot as 20% as a result of the system will mechanically function on the optimal obligation level. It allows the operator to take full management of the pumps, simplifying the whole cargo discharge operation with out putting in any further hardware.
Fure Ven is among the many first vessels at Furetank to have electrical cargo pumps put in. The firm has recorded a 25% discount in energy and gasoline consumption in relation to cargo discharge operations in comparison with vessels in the fleet that have hydraulic pumps.
