Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump methods for two LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a document yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European nations by ship to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, earlier than being transported by pipeline for everlasting storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m beneath 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 could have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise shall be proven to its full potential, as the buyer wants the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural gasoline. Over pressure gauge octa , Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump systems to more than 1,one hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have gained the order via our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with systems for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gasoline pumps, which they are very acquainted with from quite a few LPG tankers.”

Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) tasks. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic significance. This could be an enormous market for us throughout the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 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 centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but in addition on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
