The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump systems for two LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a document yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating 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 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 could have a capability of seven,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how might be shown to its full potential, because the buyer wants the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG pure fuel. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump techniques to more than 1,a hundred LPG tankers all over the world.
“We have won the order by way of our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling techniques 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 quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers since the late 1990s.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed so far, we are a half of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) projects. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of great strategic significance. This might be an enormous market for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
ขนาดpressuregauge started 2022 with a 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. The strategy is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but also on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
