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 facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a report year 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, before 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 could have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how shall be shown to its full potential, because the buyer desires the pumps to also be used to handling LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump systems to greater than 1,100 LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have received the order through our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with systems for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they’re very familiar with from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying pressure gauge วัด แรง ดัน น้ำ for CO2 carriers because the late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the relatively few CO2 ships built so far, we’re a part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a focus area in our business strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic significance. This could be an enormous marketplace for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a model new “Powering a better future” strategy and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the top of 2026. The strategy is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but also on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
