Svanehøj pumps selected for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to provide pump methods for two LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a record yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is growing 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, earlier than being transported by pipeline for everlasting storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m under the seabed.
Become an insider are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels may 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 technology might be shown to its full potential, as the customer needs the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG pure gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump techniques to greater than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
“We have won the order via our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with systems for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gasoline pumps, which they are very familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the relatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight space in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic importance. This could probably be a big marketplace for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a greater future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the end of 2026. The technique is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but in addition on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
