Svanehøj pumps selected 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 can transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a document 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing 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 permanent storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m beneath the seabed.
เพรสเชอร์เกจ are being built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels could have a capacity 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 customer desires the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump systems to greater than 1,100 LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have gained the order through our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo handling techniques for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”

Svanehøj has been supplying ไดอะแฟรม for CO2 carriers since the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed up to now, we’re a part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) projects. CCS is a spotlight area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic importance. This could be an enormous marketplace for us within the subsequent 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. The technique is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
