“We have now portable pumping systems available in Dubai on rental basis, in addition to all our other locations around the world,” says Hubertus Otten, Service Manager in Framo Middle East.

From providing Framo equipment to handle any pumping challenge from Norway, Rotterdam, Houston, Korea and Singapore, the company expands its offering of rental solutions in Dubai.

“Sailing vessels get direct access to necessary equipment in a new area for emergency pumping operation, this being cargo operations, ballast shifting, bunkering or de-slopping in the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman area,” says Otten. “Dubai is an important shipping hub, where it is natural to offer quality pumping equipment at competitive prices due to local availability.”

Based on Framo marine history and experience gathered on numerous routine and specialised pumping operations, Framo rental department has built over the years an equipment fleet which can be used for virtually every pump challenge, either routine or specialised.

“We can provide our customers with a tailored pumping solution. Framo can assist with pumping equipment and experts to salvage offloading and emergency offloading, difficult cargo assistance, debunkering, tank cleaning and sludge pumping,” he continues.

With decades of pumping experience, Framo can also assist in operations connected to booster pumping, terminal storage tank assistance and frozen liquid tank heating. Today, Framo supplies cargo pumping systems to the majority of the sailing product and chemical tankers. The company also delivers a wide range of portable pumping equipment, Oil spill and remote offloading equipment to both the marine and offshore industry.

“Framo rental pumping equipment can be used as standalone sets, on-shore and offshore for virtually any pumping challenge. We have deployed our equipment for chemical plants, refinery’s, tank storage facilities, sea going tankers, inland barges, rail-cars and even trucks,” says Otten.

The Framo portable pumps are hydraulic driven, with a large discharge capacity. Applications using diesel motor driven hydraulic power packs can be used on any type of vessel, with or without a Framo system.

“Do not just rent pumping equipment. Rent an expert,” concludes Otten.
