Grundfos and the Shipping Industry
- Set out to sea with a trustworthy partner
When you set out to sea you want peace of mind to be your companion. And that is exactly what Grundfos' dedicated marine pumps will guarantee you. Built on more than 60 years of experience within the pump business, our robust range covers thoroughly tested pumps and pump systems for:
- Engine cooling
- Fire fighting
- Boiler feed
- All essential utilities
With tens of thousands of Grundfos pumps at work on ships, we understand the importance of high performance, reliability and quality. We were the first pump manufacturer to get the ISO 9001 certification – and we continue to pursue goals to ensure that your every pump requirement at sea is efficiently covered by us. A new product is not released unless its performance significantly exceeds that of the existing product.
When it comes to energy-efficient marine pumps, Grundfos is second to none. The cutting-edge technology used in our pumps allows the energy consumption related to engine cooling to be cut by as much as 50%. This is done by automatically adjusting the pump speed to the temperature of the seawater and/or to the engine load. As approximately 90% of a pump’s total cost stems from the energy consumption, this makes for significantly reduced life cycle costs.
As a global company, professional support is never far away – also when you are sailing the seven seas. With over 80 sales and service companies in more than 45 countries, you or your customer have easy access to the Grundfos expertise. On top of that, spare parts are readily available and can be sent to any port around the world within 24 hours. Which is just another of many benefits of choosing Grundfos to accompany you at sea.
