The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to produce pump techniques for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a document yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing 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, 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 anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels will have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be shown to its full potential, as the customer needs the pumps to even be used to handling LPG pure gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump techniques to more than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
“We have gained the order via our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling techniques for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gasoline pumps, which they are very acquainted with from numerous LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump methods for CO2 carriers for the reason that late 1990s.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we’re a half of the dialogue on a number of of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a spotlight area in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is therefore of nice strategic significance. This could be a big market for us within the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
เพรสเชอร์เกจ started 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 tip of 2026. The technique is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but also on investing in new business areas, together with CCS.
