Svanehøj pumps selected for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply 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 record yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European countries by ship to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, before being transported by pipeline for everlasting storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m under the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Index will have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how might be shown to its full potential, as the customer desires the pumps to also be used to handling LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have won the order through our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling systems for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers because the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the relatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight space in our business strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic importance. This could presumably be an enormous marketplace for us throughout the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a greater future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the top of 2026. The technique is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but additionally on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
