Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump methods for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a record yr 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, before being transported by pipeline for everlasting storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m under the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. ไดอะแฟรม may 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 challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas technology might be shown to its full potential, because the buyer needs the pumps to also be used to handling LPG pure fuel. 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 by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with techniques 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’re very acquainted with from quite a few LPG tankers.”

Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the relatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we’re part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight space in our business strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic importance. This could be an enormous market for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a greater future” strategy 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 transport, but in addition on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
