Svanehøj pumps selected 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 can transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.

Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European international locations 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 constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. ไดอะแฟรม could have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship pressure gauge of for each ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how will be shown 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 provided cargo pump techniques to greater than 1,one hundred LPG tankers all over 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 gasoline pumps, which they are very acquainted with from quite a few LPG tankers.”

Svanehøj has been supplying diaphragm seal for CO2 carriers since the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed thus far, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight area in our business strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic importance. This could be an enormous market for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj started 2022 with a brand new “Powering a greater future” technique and a goal of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the end of 2026.
