The Danish pump specialist Svanehøj expects to post an all-time excessive order intake of DKK750 million–DKK800 million for 2021, up 50% on the company’s earlier report set in 2014.
2021 has been a record 12 months for Svanehøj.
Svanehøj’s patented DW fuel pump solution is one of the major progress drivers. The pump was introduced to the market in 2015 and can account for almost 30% of whole orders in 2021.
CEO Søren Kringelholt Nielsen stated the company’s gas pump sales quadrupled on 2020, with new orders unfold broadly throughout sectors.
“We see a significant increase in orders of fuel pump methods for LNG-fuelled boxships, cruise ships and PCTC vessels. Furthermore, we’ve obtained a really giant variety of orders for LPG carriers, the place we provide pump systems 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, เกจปรับแรงดันแก๊ส signed an agreement with a Japanese FGSS supplier on gas pumps for six LNG-fuelled Pure Care and Truck Carriers.
“We see clear indications that many of the ships to be built within the coming years will be built to run on LNG. Therefore, we count on additional progress in this segment,” said Kringelholt Nielsen.
“At the same time, a marketplace for new gasoline types will emerge, driven by the large-scale investments in Power-to-X. We have already taken this under consideration with our fuel pump, which is totally appropriate with e-fuels similar to green ammonia and methanol. In this way, we handle shipowners’ uncertainty with a future-proof pump solution. Regardless of the propellant,” said Kringelholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj has started 2022 with a brand new strategy and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (US$152 million) by 2026. In addition to gasoline pumps for LNG, LPG and future artificial e-fuels, Svanehøj sees nice potential in growing pump solutions for the infrastructure to be constructed round Power-to-X and carbon capture and storage (CCS).
