Efficient Pump System for Heavy Loading and Unloading

When Robert Malachowski was recommended to use DESMI pumps on board the new Cargo pontoon TRD-HORIZON he was quick to say yes and have DESMI ballast pumps installed.





When the project started, it was important for Robert to have pumps that could pump to a length of 80 meters. This was made possible with the 4 DESMI NSL centrifugal pumps from DESMI.


“This is heavy loading, and the DESMI pumps were perfect for the job – I am very satisfied with the solution” says Robert and continues: “The 4 pumps from DESMI were not only very efficient, they were also a perfect match for the system and have exceeded the expectations with their high performance”.

The pumps are of the NSL type 125-265/D02 with self-priming units and are onboard the Cargo pontoon TRD-HORIZON.

The 4 pumps can handle 150 tonnes per hour each, meaning the ballast system can handle up to 600 tonnes of load per hour.
