Wärtsilä Svanehøj deepwell cargo pumps have proven their reliability for more than 50 years at sea. All the benefits of the existing larger Wärtsilä Svanehøj deepwell cargo pumps have now been attributed to the Wärtsilä Svanehøj ECA Fuel Pump.
The Wärtsilä Svanehøj ECA Fuel Pump (EFP) offers the advantages of no tank connections below liquid level, no electrical components inside the tank and hardly any contribution to Boil Off Gas generation. It is independent of weather, sloshing and thermal conditions and ensures a steady, reliable fuel gas supply with a fast response time.
The EFP model was developed in close cooperation with designers of LNG fuel gas systems to support highly efficient, environment friendly LNG fuelled engines driven by the implementation of Emission Controlled Areas (ECAs). It is also prepared for other fuel types such as Ethane and Methanol.
Main design criteria:
The Wärtsilä Svanehøj EFP is based on well proven technology used on gas carriers for decades. We have designed a hermetically sealed pump without any sophisticated bearings or exotic materials, using standard ball bearings that ensure a long service lifetime.
Service intervals are 25,000 operating hours, or every 5 years.
The Wärtsilä Svanehøj EFP pump in normal circumstances only requires servicing every 5 years during regular dockings. However our “3 service area concept” enables access to motor, bearing and pump at any time even with gas pressure in the tank:
This provides unique service possibilities and ultimate peace of mind. Your fuel supply is also secured and can easily be restored in case of emergency.
