New Control System Makes Cargo Offloading Faster and Easier

Following a successful test on the product and chemical tanker Fure Ven, Danish deepwell pump specialist Svanehøj is launching “FlowControl.” This newly developed software-based control system automates the control of electric cargo pumps on tankers. The system ensures an optimal changeover between tanks and pumps in parallel, reducing the time needed for cargo discharge by up to 20% since the system will automatically operate at the optimal duty point. It allows the operator to take full control of the pumps, simplifying the entire cargo discharge operation—without installing any additional hardware.
