Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump systems for two LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a document year 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, 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 could have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be shown to its full potential, because the customer needs the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG natural fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump systems to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have won the order via our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo dealing with systems for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they are very familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying เครื่องมือที่ใช้วัดความดันโลหิต for CO2 carriers for the reason that late Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we’re part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) tasks. CCS is a focus area in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic importance. This could possibly be a giant marketplace for us within the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a new “Powering a better 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 focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but additionally on investing in new enterprise areas, including CCS.
