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:
- Service Area 1: Electric motor and magnetic drive can be serviced at any time.
- Service Area 2: By activating a static seal, the system can be purged and axial bearings can be accessed. Main bearing and inner magdrive can be serviced.
- Service Area 3: By activating the foot valve, the system can be purged and the pump can be retracted in handy sections of less than 1 metre.
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.
