pressure gauge Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump techniques for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a report yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing 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, earlier than 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 may have a capability of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this project, Svanehøj’s multigas expertise will be shown to its full potential, as the buyer desires the pumps to even be used to dealing with LPG natural gasoline. Over the years, Svanehøj has equipped cargo pump techniques to more than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
“ pressure gauge octa have won the order via our long-standing partner, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers full cargo handling methods 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’re very acquainted with from quite a few LPG tankers.”
Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers since the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships built up to now, we are a part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight area in our business technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is subsequently of nice strategic importance. This could presumably be a big marketplace for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 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 top of 2026. The strategy is primarily focused on supporting the transition to climate-neutral delivery, but in addition on investing in new enterprise areas, together with CCS.
