Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump systems 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 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is growing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European nations 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.
เครื่องมือใช้วัดความดัน are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels will have a capacity of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise shall be proven to its full potential, as the buyer desires the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG pure gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump methods to more than 1,one hundred LPG tankers around the world.
“We have received the order through our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling methods for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gasoline 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 relatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we are part of the dialogue on a quantity of 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 due to this fact of nice strategic significance. This could be an enormous market for us throughout the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a brand 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 strategy is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but in addition on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
