Svanehøj pumps selected for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump techniques for two LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a document year for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to transport 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 under 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 capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise might be proven to its full potential, because the customer needs the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to greater than 1,a hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have won the order by way of our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo handling systems for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they’re very acquainted with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers since the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed so far, we’re a part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) projects. CCS is a spotlight space in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic importance. This might be a giant market for us throughout the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
เกจวัดแรงดันอาร์กอน began 2022 with a model new “Powering a greater future” strategy and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the end of 2026. The strategy is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but in addition on investing in new enterprise areas, including CCS.
