Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump techniques for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a record 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European countries 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 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 will have a capability of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be proven to its full potential, because the customer desires the pumps to even be used to handling LPG natural gasoline.

Accessible have won the order via our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo handling methods for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they’re very acquainted with from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers for the rationale that late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the relatively few CO2 ships built so far, we’re a half of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic significance. This could possibly be a big market for us inside the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a new “Powering a greater future” strategy and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the end of 2026.
