Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump systems for two LNG fuelled carriers that can transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a document 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.
Because are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels could have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how shall be proven to its full potential, as the customer desires the pumps to even be used to handling LPG natural gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has provided cargo pump systems to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the world.
“We have received the order by way of our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with techniques for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross 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 since the late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we are a half of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight area in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of great strategic importance. This could possibly be a giant market for us throughout the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 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 top of 2026. The technique is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
