Svanehøj pumps selected for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce 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 record 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European nations 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 constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated 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 know-how shall be proven to its full potential, as the customer desires the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG pure gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to more than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
“We have gained the order by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with methods 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 familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers since the late Nineteen Nineties.
Well respected to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed thus far, we’re part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) projects. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of great strategic significance. This might be a big market for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 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 also on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
