Svanehøj pumps chosen for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump systems for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a record year for Svanehøj.
spmk700 is developing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other 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 under the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being built 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 each ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how shall be proven to its full potential, because the customer wants the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG pure gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump methods to greater than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
“We have received the order through our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling systems for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very acquainted with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers for the reason that late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed up to now, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) projects. CCS is a focus area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic significance. This could be a giant market for us inside 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 end of 2026. The technique is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but additionally on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
