Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to provide pump systems for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a report yr 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, before being transported by pipeline for everlasting storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m under the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels will have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise will be shown to its full potential, as the buyer wants the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG natural gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the world.
“We have received the order through our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo dealing with systems for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen Stunning , which they’re very conversant in from numerous 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 constructed so far, we’re part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight space in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic importance. This could be a giant marketplace for us within 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 top of 2026. The strategy is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but in addition on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
