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 underneath the seabed.
The two CO2 carriers are being constructed at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels could have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship.

Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers for the explanation that late Nineteen Nineties.
“Thanks to our experience from the comparatively few CO2 ships built so far, we’re a half of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) initiatives. CCS is a focus area in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of great strategic significance. This might be a giant market for us within the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
