The purposes of this paper are to:
(1) present some of the history in the development of LNG Cargo Pumps
(2) to indicate how the requirements of the Industry have been accommodated to date
(3) to put forward methods of meeting the pumping requirements for ships to be designed and built from the mid 90s and onward.

As a manufacturer of cargo handling equipment we have little influence or preference over the marine and naval architectural aspects of the ship's design or of its trade, capacity, or containment system. Our expertise is in satisfying the cargo pumping requirements, and designing the equipment in consultation with the shipyard, classification society and the owner's satisfaction.

We would like to initiate this discussion with a brief history of the submerged electric motor LNG cargo pump from its origin to the present time. Finally we will comment on the development required to satisfy the anticipated needs of larger capacity LNG carriers in the future.
