Singapore’s Keppel Shipyard has awarded Norwegian liquid handling and pump specialist PG Flow Solutions a contract to supply high flow seawater pumps to the ‘Gimi FLNG’ that is being converted at the yard.
PG will deliver four large seawater pumps, each with a capacity of 5,500 cu m of water per hour. The contract value was not disclosed.
The pumps will be used to cool down the on board turbine steam condensers.
“These axial type propeller pumps represent a highly reliable technology that is just as popular in the maritime and oil and gas industries because of its low maintenance requirements. We are very proud to be involved with this prestigious FLNG project,” said Kjetil Vatne, PG Flow Solutions R&D manager.
PG will assemble the pumps at the company’s facility in Sande, Norway, and then transport them to Keppel’s yard in Singapore. The delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019.
