Sailing Yacht EOS – AME Range
AME Mag drive process pumps for one of the worlds most luxurious yachts, Eos
AME pumps have been supplied to the world’s leading chemical manufacturing companies including BASF and DOW, along with some more unusual applications
One of the more unusual applications for this range was for pumping seawater through large condensers on an air conditioning plant on one of the world’s largest private sailing yachts.
The engineers were experiencing reliability issues with a mechanically sealed pump and so wanted to move to a more reliable, mag drive option. When in the middle of an ocean, you can understand why reliability is paramount!
Eos is a three-masted Bermuda rigged schooner. The 300ft long ship is one of the largest private sailing yachts in the world and boasts three 200ft high masts. It was built by Lurssen in Germany at their Bremen shipyard in 2006.
