Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers because the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we are part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) projects. CCS is a spotlight area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic importance. This could possibly be an enormous marketplace for us within the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
