Kvaerner Eureka Cargo Pumps Specified For Two North Sea Tankers

Kvaerner Eureka cargo pumps have been specified for two 91,000- dwt North Sea shuttle tankers recently contracted by Finland's state oil company Neste Oy, from domestic shipbuilder Masa Yards.

This contract is a significant one for Kvaerner Eureka as it breaks new ground in the use of the company's cargo discharge systems, as well as continuing the boom in orders for its cargo pumping systems.

The cargo discharge solution for the Neste shuttle tankers is a departure from the norm for Kvaerner Eureka. After a great deal of technical discussion and development, Neste decided on a Kvaerner Eureka centrifugal, deep-well, cargo pump system.

Each vessel will be fitted with seven deep-well, submerged centrifugal cargo pumps, all driven by frequency-controlled electric motors.

Instrumental in Neste's decision in specifying the Kvaerner Eureka system was overall economics and environmental awareness.

The unloading system for both Neste North Sea shuttle tankers has been developed by Kvaerner in cooperation with EB Industry & Offshore.

The two tankers will be delivered by Masa Yards in 1991/92.

Kvaerner Eureka scored a significant increase in pump orders for the 1990 year—45 percent up on 1989.
