SVANEHØJ, which is located in Aalborg, Denmark, has secured an order from South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries for a total of 42 pumps for three new Very Large Ethane Carriers (VLEC).

The ships have been ordered by the Chinese company Zhejiang Satellite Petrochemical and will be used to carry liquid ethane from Texas, USA, to the company's petrochemical terminal in Lianyungang, China.

The order includes 24 offloading pumps, 12 spray pumps and six fuel pumps, all of which will be manufactured in Denmark and delivered to Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea within the first six months of 2020.

The order strengthens the positive development that SVANEHØJ has experienced since investment company Solix bought Wärtsilä Pumps from Finnish Wärtsilä Group in the autumn of 2018 and established Svanehøj Group with companies in Denmark, UK and Singapore.

It is not least new international requirements for ships' sulphur emissions that are increasing activity and creating expectations of further growth at Svanehøj Group. With effect from January 1, 2020, the limit for sulphur in marine fuel will be reduced from 3.5% to 0.5%. This will increase demand for technology that can make ships capable of sailing on gas instead of high-polluting heavy fuel oil (HFO).

SVANEHØJ has previously supplied pump systems for ships that transport ethane, but not ships as large as the ones in this case.
