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 facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a document 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing 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, earlier than 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 expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels will have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise might 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 provided cargo pump techniques to greater than 1,one hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“ เกจวัดแรงดันออกซิเจน have received the order via our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo dealing with systems 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 numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers since the late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed thus far, we are part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) projects. CCS is a focus space in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of great strategic significance. This could be a big marketplace for us within 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 top of 2026. The technique is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new enterprise areas, including CCS.
