Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply 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 document 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is growing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other 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 under the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels may have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be proven to its full potential, because the customer desires the pumps to also be used to handling LPG pure gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has provided cargo pump techniques to more than 1,100 LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have received the order by way of our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo dealing with techniques for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen Bonus , which they’re very familiar with from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers because the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the relatively few CO2 ships built so far, we are a half of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight space in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic importance. This could presumably be a giant marketplace for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a model new “Powering a better future” strategy 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, together with CCS.
