MFV “Atlantic Quest”

Project details

KER Group replaced the current vacuum pump system with Samson V15 on the MFV “Atlantic Quest”.

Works completed

  • Overhaul of the existing Vacuum pump system. 
  • The original system was unable to pump efficiently. We replaced the complete pump with a new Samson V15, converted the hydraulic controls to pneumatic (air and electric). 
  • Commissioned and tested.
  • Supplied and fitted a Pneumatic Stainless steel 4-way valve.
  • Removed existing 4” piping, and replaced it with stainless steel, incorporating a blowback system.


We employed KER Group to carry out a complete upgrade of the Vacuum pump system on board the MFV “Atlantic Quest”. The pumping system is much quicker since the upgrade.

KER Group are the ideal company for all your Vacuum pump needs.
