Svanehøj pumps selected for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to provide pump systems for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a report yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European international locations 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 capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be shown to its full potential, because the customer wants the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump methods to greater than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
Uncomplicated have received the order by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with methods for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they are very conversant in from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers for the rationale that late Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic importance. This might be a big marketplace for us inside the next 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 focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but in addition on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
