Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump methods for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a record yr for Svanehøj.
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 beneath 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 capability of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise might be proven to its full potential, because the customer needs the pumps to also be used to handling LPG pure gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has provided cargo pump systems to greater than 1,one hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have received the order through our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling techniques for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”

Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are a part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) projects. pressure gauge is a focus area in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic significance. This might be an enormous marketplace for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a brand new “Powering a greater future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the tip of 2026. The technique is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but also on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
