When the pumps on a sailing power plant generate power in the open sea, it will be with 170 electric motors from Hoyer on board. Strong, long-term relations with a German partner resulted in the interesting special order.
It requires tremendous pump capacity and thus motor power for a single ship to produce up to 486 MW on the open sea. That is precisely the case for the power-producing ship for which Hoyer recently received an order. Hoyer will be delivering a total of 170 motors for their German customer, which will manufacture the pumps for a large, specially designed ship containing a complete power plant driven by diesel power.
The vessel that Hoyer is providing motors for works like a floating power plant that generates high-voltage electricity. By connecting to a given country’s high-voltage network, the large ship can supply refineries or other land-based customers with electricity for longer periods. On board the ship, Hoyer electric motors will drive a total of 170 pump applications of different types.
“The ship has pumps for many different purposes: for fuel supply, for the main machinery that drives the vessel, for power generation and for the delivery of lubrication. Our delivery contains electric motors for centrifugal pumps in water applications and a series of screw pumps in the oil applications. It’s a very diverse delivery,” says Jon Berggren, Global Key Account Manager for Hoyer, who has a background in the pump industry.
The order is the most recent proof that Hoyer is constantly increasing its cooperation with the German pump manufacturer. With quality deliveries on time, Hoyer has proved its worth as a reliable partner over a long period. That is one of the many reasons why Hoyer is highest on the list of subsuppliers in marine and offshore. Jon Berggren explains:
“I see it as an important strength that we at Hoyer understand our partners and their role as supplier to the end-user. Our lasting support and strong logistics mean that we are a partner you can rely on one hundred percent. And as a supplier, we live up to the strictest requirements and certifications in marine and offshore,” he says.
Together with the two other Key Account Managers, Jon Berggren is part of Hoyer’s newly established Global Team that was launched to support partnerships with international OEM customers. The objective of the new team is to optimise work in those areas that constitute the basis for Hoyer’s cooperation with the global corporations.
