Northern Lights is growing 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 under 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 capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas technology might be shown to its full potential, as the buyer desires the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG natural gas.

Svanehøj has been supplying เกจวัดแรงดัน1บาร์ for CO2 carriers because the late 1990s.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight space in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic significance. This could be a big market for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
