Svanehøj launches control system for cargo offloading

Danish pump manufacturer Svanehøj has launched its newly developed environmentally friendly Flow Control system, which automates the management of electric cargo pumps on tankers.
digital pressure gauge of the newly developed software-based management system follows a successful test in collaboration with the Swedish delivery firm Furetank on the P&C tanker Fure Ven. The 18,000 DWT vessel was in-built 2019 as considered one of Furetank’s V-Series, a new era of climate-smart P&C tankers.
Svanehøj’s system makes it sooner, easier, and extra environment friendly to operate electrical cargo pumps. It ensures an optimum changeover between tanks and pumps in parallel, decreasing the time needed for cargo discharge by up to 20% as a end result of the system will mechanically operate at the optimum responsibility point. It allows the operator to take full control of the pumps, simplifying the entire cargo discharge operation without installing any further hardware.
Fure Ven is among the many first vessels at Furetank to have electric cargo pumps put in. The company has recorded a 25% reduction in power and fuel consumption in relation to cargo discharge operations in comparability with vessels in the fleet that have hydraulic pumps.
