PG Flow Solutions is supplying three of its recently developed PG-Tornado fish pump to a de-lousing vessel that Norway’s Frøy Group is currently modifying.
The PG-Tornado was developed and is manufactured under a cooperation between PG Flow Solutions and Norway’s Smartline AS. The pump is the brainchild of Roy-Arne Breivik and Ben-Tommy Eriksen.
The pump systems will be assembled and tested at PG Flow Solutions’ fabrication and test site at Sande in Vestfold, Norway.
PG Flow Solutions will also supply a hydraulic drive unit and control system to operate the fish pumps. The PG-HydroFlow and PG-Tornado pump systems will be installed on-deck and hooked up to the de-lousing system, which is being delivered by SkaMik.
“PG-Tornado elevates fish welfare to a different level,” said Steve Paulsen, CEO of PG Flow Solution. “The pump has no moving parts that can injure the fish, and a lifting height that by a good margin is suitable for de-lousing vessels, wellboats and processing plants. The fact that Frøy chooses this pump in combination with the world’s largest de-lousing system is the best technology confirmation we could get.”
