Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to provide pump systems for two LNG fuelled carriers that can transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a document 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European international locations by ship to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, earlier than being transported by pipeline for permanent storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m underneath the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels may have a capacity of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In pressure gauge หน้าปัด 4 นิ้ว , Svanehøj’s multigas technology shall be proven to its full potential, as the buyer needs the pumps to also be used to handling LPG natural gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump techniques to more than 1,one hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have gained the order via our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo dealing with techniques for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships built so far, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) projects. CCS is a focus area in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic importance. This might be an enormous marketplace for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a new “Powering a greater future” technique and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the tip of 2026. The strategy is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but in addition on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
