Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump methods for 2 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 transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other 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. Both vessels could have a capability of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how might be shown to its full potential, because the buyer desires the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has provided cargo pump methods to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have received the order by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling methods for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen pressure gauge น้ำมัน , which they’re very conversant in from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers because the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the relatively few CO2 ships constructed so far, we’re a part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) tasks. CCS is a focus area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic importance. This could probably be a giant marketplace for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a model new “Powering a better future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the tip of 2026. The strategy is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but additionally on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
