In the middle of November, just seven months ago, the Danish frigate ‘Peter Willemoes’ visited Baltimore Harbor, Maryland to give the American market an opportunity to meet a Danish Maritime Export delegation consisting of representatives from the Danish Navy and Marine Industry, as well as learn more about Danish abilities and suppliers of systems and solutions – including DESMI shock pumps.
The Frigate was in the US to participate in an exercise organized with a US Navy Carrier Battle Group. Prior to this exercise, the Danish Ministry of Defense and the Navy had allowed the ship to host a Danish delegation while presenting their capabilities to the US Navy and US defense industry.
The Frigate is outfitted with pumps designed to have as many components shared between the different pump sizes as possible. This means that parts like bearings, shaft seals, as well as bigger and more complex cast parts are interchangeable in several of the pumps on board. The advantage of having several pumps sharing the same parts is that they will also share the same stock items. All in all, this will cut down the stock of onboard spares and the related costs. In addition, the supplier will have a more lean supply of spares, all to the benefit of the end user.
In recent years, the spare parts supply from DESMI has turned more into the direction of Spare Parts Kits instead of individual items. This makes the logistics and inventory management much easier and lowers expenses.
That, paired with DESMI pumps, have a reputation for great performance and high efficiency – ultimately making DESMI the best match for a modern warship.
DESMI supports Navy activities in many different ways:
- Full understanding of Naval technical requirements and applications;
- Right option for construction materials to suit unique applications;
- Pumps are available in full shock rated design;
- Pumps for fully submerged use in action damaged compartments.
