Coffin Turbo Pump, Inc. (CTP) has been awarded a contract by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) of Korea for twelve boiler feed pumps. Four shipsets of three pumps each will be installed on four LNG (liquefied natural gas) carriers HHI is to construct for Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS), the state-owned oil and gas provider in Malaysia. The feed pumps will be installed PETRONAS’s four new LNG carriers, which will play a major role in transporting LNG produced in PETRONAS’s future LNG projects. Deliveries are scheduled for 2015 and 2016 and manufacturing will take place at Coffin’s Englewood, NJ facility in the United States.
Each boiler feed pump shipset consists of two steam turbine drive pumps and one motor drive pump per ship for a total of twelve (12) pumps under this contract. The pumps meet the higher pressure and temperature conditions of the latest Ultra Steam Turbine (UST) plants being supplied by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Engine Co., Ltd. (MHI-MME).
“Coffin Pump has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with HHI, and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with them on this milestone contract for CTP.” says Joe Motisi, Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “In order to compete with alternate propulsion technologies, UST plant employs a reheat cycle increasing the overall plant efficiency by operating at higher temperatures and pressures as compared to conventional steam propulsion plants. CTP has contributed to this increase in overall plant efficiency by improving the efficiency of our pump, and extending the operating range of our turbine design in order to meet the new UST conditions. We are excited and privileged to be able to secure this order and confident in our ability to provide HHI with the best possible feed pump for this next generation LNGC design.”
