The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump systems for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that may transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage facilities in Norway.
2021 has been a record year for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is creating infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different European nations by ship to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage, before being transported by pipeline for everlasting storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 m beneath the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024. Both vessels may have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for every ship. In this venture, Svanehøj’s multigas technology will be shown to its full potential, as the buyer desires the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG pure gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump systems to more than 1,one hundred LPG tankers around the globe.
“ differential pressure gauge ราคา have gained the order through our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo dealing with systems for the CO2 carriers,” stated Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, gross sales director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj. “TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very conversant in from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump systems for CO2 carriers for the explanation that late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed up to now, we’re a half of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon seize & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a focus space in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic significance. This could be a giant market for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a new “Powering a better future” strategy and a goal 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 transport, but additionally on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
