Svanehøj pumps selected for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump techniques for two LNG fuelled carriers that can transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a report 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is growing 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 expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels may have a capacity of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In เกจปรับแรงดันแก๊ส , Svanehøj’s multigas know-how might be shown to its full potential, because the buyer desires the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has provided cargo pump methods to greater than 1,a hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have gained the order by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with techniques for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gasoline pumps, which they are very familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships built so far, we’re part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight area in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of great strategic significance. This could possibly be a big marketplace for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a 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.
