Finnish marine fuel-systems provider Auramarine on Wednesday (8 April) announced a landmark delivery of the 15,000th unit of its fuel supply and management auxiliary systems.
The company says this reflects a significant increase in shipowners’ mindset in effectively managing the momentous transition within the marine energy supply chain following the implementation of the global sulphur cap on 1st January 2020.
The 15,000th fuel supply unit is an Auramarine Feeder Booster for the marine industry, designed for a 22 MW powered engine, with steam-heating and electrically-driven add-on pump for MGO and MDO, it said.
The delivery took place on 11 March 2020 to a Korean shipyard for installation on a newbuild 2500 TEU container ship of a reputable Korean transportation company. The ship is the first one in a series of container vessels that will be launched later in 2020 notes Auramarine.
Auramarine says its auxiliary units have consistently delivered safe and efficient fuel system management, enabling owners and operators to effectively manage the health of the vessel when handling fuel temperature and viscosity to avoid costly damage, unplanned downtime and associated safety issues.
“We feel honoured to have long-term partnerships with our clients,” says Jouko Salo, CEO, Auramarine.
“Such partnership is incredibly important in a changing regulatory environment and shows the continued success of our company”.
Auramarine says it has gained much insight and knowledge on some of the key challenges that the shipping industry faces, and the impact that they have on shipowners’ operations.
The company states it will continue to work closely with its customers to design and deliver fuel supply systems to guarantee efficient combustion and to mitigate various combustion system risks.
