The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump systems for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a document yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European international locations 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 built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels will have a capability of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how shall be proven to its full potential, as the buyer desires the pumps to also be used to dealing with LPG natural fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to more than 1,one hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“We have gained the order via our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with techniques for the CO2 carriers,” mentioned Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gasoline pumps, which they are very conversant in from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers for the rationale that late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed thus far, we are a part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a focus area in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic significance. This could probably be a big market for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a better future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the end of 2026. เกจวัดแรงดันแก๊สอาร์กอน is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but also on investing in new enterprise areas, including CCS.
