We received an enquiry from a fleet management company with an urgent requirement to replace two vertical inline ballast pumps that were currently installed on board two vessels. The existing pumps had been supplied over fifteen years ago and were no longer performing as they should.
In order to meet the vessels when they reach dry dock, the vertical inline centrifugal pumps needed to be manufactured and marine certified within a six week lead time. The difficulty in this enquiry was that the average lead time of these particular pumps is eight weeks.
Thanks to the relationship we have built with the manufacturer, we were able to confirm that we were able to supply both marine certified ballast pumps within the timescale required. In fact, the goods were actually shipped in just five weeks, ensuring that the vertical inline pumps could be installed on the vessels one week earlier than expected, reducing the cost of keeping the vessel in dry dock for another week.
