New technology – smart technology – is available that enables vessel and fleet operators to achieve substantial energy savings by running pumps more efficiently via a sophisticated control system. Such a system can be applied to both newbuild and retrofit situations.
Colfax Fluid Handling factors efficiency gains into their solutions that look beyond initial investment costs and ongoing ownership costs. They use the concept of total savings of ownership (TSO) to create value across an organization. Ship managers no longer need to think of “equipment suppliers,” rather they are choosing a pump technology partner – an organization that provides the people that will integrate their solutions in the most timely and efficient manner.
For more than 70 years, Colfax has been working with the commercial marine industry to keep pace with changing compliance and regulation demands, as well as helping the industry meet evolving environmental issues. This white paper highlights one of our latest efforts: the search for pumping equipment that can meet the demands of low-viscosity, low-sulfur fuels.
