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 amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a document 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European international locations by ship to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, before being transported by pipeline for permanent storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m under the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels could have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how will be shown to its full potential, as the buyer needs the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump methods to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have received the order via our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo handling methods for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers for the reason that late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we’re part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight area in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic significance. This could be an enormous marketplace for us throughout the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a model 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. weksler ea14 is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
