Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump techniques for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a record 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European international locations 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 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 will be shown to its full potential, because the customer wants the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump systems to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have received the order by way of our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo dealing with methods for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen เกจแรงดันสูง , which they’re very acquainted with from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers for the reason that late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the relatively few CO2 ships built so far, we are part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) projects. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic importance. This could presumably be an enormous market for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a better future” technique and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the tip of 2026. The technique is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
