Norwegian pump supplier PG Flow Solutions has been awarded a contract by Keppel Shipyard to supply high flow seawater pumps to the Gimi floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project, for an undisclosed sum.
The company has been contracted to deliver four large seawater pumps, each with a capacity of 5,500 cubic metres of water per hour.
The pumps will be used to cool down onboard turbine steam condensers, and will run on energy optimisation by frequency converters.
“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, R&D manager at PG Flow Solutions.
PG Flow Solutions will manufacture the pumps at its facility in Sande, Vestfold in Norway, before transporting them to Keppel Shipyard in Singapore.
The pumps are due for delivery in the final quarter of this year.
