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 amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a record yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is growing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European nations 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 underneath 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 capacity of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise will be shown to its full potential, because the buyer needs the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG pure gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump methods to greater than 1,100 LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have won the order by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo handling methods for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen Black market , which they are very familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers because the late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed up to now, we are part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight space in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic importance. This could probably be a big market for us throughout the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a brand new “Powering a better future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the top of 2026. The technique is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
