The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump methods for two LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage services in Norway.
2021 has been a document year for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to move 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 permanent 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 anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels could have a capability of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas technology shall be proven to its full potential, as the customer needs the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to more than 1,100 LPG tankers around the globe.
“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,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo fuel pumps, which they’re very familiar with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers because the late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the relatively few CO2 ships built thus far, we are part of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of great strategic significance. This could be a giant market for us inside the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
เกจวัดแรง 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 tip of 2026. The strategy is primarily targeted on supporting the transition to climate-neutral shipping, but additionally on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
