The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump techniques for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a report 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European countries by ship to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, before being transported by pipeline for permanent storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m beneath 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 each ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise will be shown to its full potential, because the customer needs the pumps to also be used to handling LPG natural gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump techniques to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the world.
“ เกจ์วัดความดัน have won the order via our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling methods for the CO2 carriers,” said Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they’re very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers for the rationale that late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the relatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a focus area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic importance. This could be a big market for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj 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 tip of 2026. The technique is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but additionally on investing in new enterprise areas, including CCS.
