Service on 18 Seawater Pumps

When Orskov Yard got the contract for service and repair of Vædderen, the Danish Thetis-class ocean patrol vessel, they needed expertise and manpower for 18 engine room pumps - and DESMI was an easy choice when selecting a pump service partner.

“There are quite many pumps on board Vædderen, the Royal Danish Navy’s patrol vessel, and we needed a professional pump service partner to manage the overhaul and replacement of spare parts in 18 seawater pumps. DESMI was on Makers List and based on a combination of pump expertise and the right price, it was easy for us to choose DESMI for the task”, says Thomas Justinussen, Project Manager.

The partnership between Orskov Yard and DESMI goes back many years, and Thomas continues: “We have worked together with DESMI on many projects. DESMI has the skills to do the pump service. They have a superior pump knowledge, are very professional and are always quick to respond to questions.”


When looking into the engine room on board Vædderen, it is clear that it has been quite a challenge to remove the pumps from the engine room, but with a well planned rigging everything went smoothly and all pumps have been overhauled at DESMI’s workshop in Noerresundby, Denmark.

For each of the 18 pumps, DESMI has made a full service report, so that the crew on board Vædderen has all data available.

For more than 60 years, Orskov Yard has supplied superior ship repair and conversion service. The shipyard services more than 100 vessels each year such as tankers, offshore support vessels, ro-ro, ferries, fishing vessels, navy vessels as well as other specialized vessels.
