Cruise & Ferry Review - Spring/Summer 2023

152 Water pumps play a vital role on cruise ships, whether in the heeling, sanitary or ventilation systems, emptying the bilges, cooling the main engines, or forming part of the installed scrubber system. To ensure passenger safety and operational stability, cruise ships depend on high-quality pumps to do the job. For decades, owners have seen the value of products from IRON Pump based on the quality of the pumps and the 100 per cent genuine spare parts. IRON Pump has supplied water pumps for the cruise industry since 1912, and today cruise ships and ferries continue to account for a major part of the IRON Pump business. All pumps are designed and manufactured in Copenhagen, Denmark.
