Svanehøj wins major pump order in China

Svanehøj wins major pump order in China

Svanehøj has just secured its largest order in the product and chemical (P&C) tanker segment since 2005.

China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International Co Ltd (GSI) has selected the Danish pump manufacturer to supply 96 deepwell pumps for four new 49 900 DWT MR tankers that it is building for White Whale Shipping.

Svanehøj has also recently signed a pump contract with China’s Cosco Dalian Shipyard for two similar P&C tankers.

Svanehøj has strengthened its presence in China in recent years. In 2020, the company expanded its Chinese organisation from three to 15 employees with competencies in sourcing, sales and service.

“Since establishing an office in Suzhou at the end of 2019, we have strengthened our position in China, with our own sales and service people. Through local presence, we’ve become closer to shipyards in the region, and thus gained greater insight into how we can best meet their needs,” said Svanehøj sales director Johnny Houmann.

Svanehøj has manufactured pump systems for P&C tankers for decades, but the segment is now becoming a significantly larger part of its business. The Danish company has a target of increasing sales of P&C cargo pumps by 40% over the next three years.
