The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump methods for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a report 12 months for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is growing infrastructure to transport 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 beneath 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 may have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be shown to its full potential, as the customer desires the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump methods to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have won the order by way of our long-standing companion, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling systems for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers because the late 1990s.
เกจ์วัดแรงดัน to our experience from the relatively few CO2 ships constructed up to now, we are part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a focus area in our business strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic significance. This could presumably be a giant marketplace for us throughout the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a better future” strategy and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the top of 2026. The strategy is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
