Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump techniques for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a document year for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing 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, earlier than being transported by pipeline for permanent 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 will have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be proven to its full potential, as the buyer wants the pumps to also be used to handling LPG pure gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has provided cargo pump techniques to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the world.
“We have won the order by way of our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling techniques for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”

Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers for the reason that late Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we’re a part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) projects. CCS is a spotlight area in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic importance. This could be a big marketplace for us throughout the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
เกจวัดแรง began 2022 with a new “Powering a greater future” strategy and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the tip of 2026. The technique is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
