The Danish marine pump specialist Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply pump systems for 2 LNG fuelled carriers that can transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights project’s storage amenities in Norway.
2021 has been a record yr for Svanehøj.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European nations 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 built 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 deliver two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship. In this challenge, Svanehøj’s multigas know-how will be proven to its full potential, as the buyer desires the pumps to even be used to handling LPG natural gas.

Svanehøj has been supplying cargo pump techniques for CO2 carriers for the rationale that late 1990s.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed up to now, we’re a part of the dialogue on a quantity of of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a spotlight space in our enterprise strategy, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic importance. This could be a giant marketplace for us inside the next few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
Svanehøj began 2022 with a model new “Powering a better future” technique and a target of doubling its turnover to DKK1 billion (approximately US$143 million) by the top of 2026. The technique is primarily centered on supporting the transition to climate-neutral transport, but additionally on investing in new business areas, including CCS.
