IRON Pump News in Brief

NEW ORDER: Ellehammer fire water pump for FPSO.

Autumn 2019 IRON Pump secured a new order for an FPSO being built in Nigeria.

This project is the second Ellehammer fire pump system to be manufactured and tested at IRON Pump facilities after the acquisition of Ellehammer in 2017.

Merging two business and implementing a new product line creates challenges. In our case, the fire water pump package required more space and new test facilities needed to be built. With the transfer of knowledge, which was brought to IRON with the skilled Ellehammer staff, this project was succesfully completed and our first engine-driven Fire Water Pump, 100% manufactured and tested at IRON, was delivered to a Norwegian customer in 2018. This system was supplied for onshore purposes and manufactured, tested and delivered within a period on 26 weeks from signed order.
