Northern Lights is growing infrastructure to move CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and different 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 underneath the seabed.
เกจ์วัดแรงดันลม are being built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are anticipated to be operational in 2024. Both vessels could have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will ship two 15 m deepwell cargo pumps of for each ship.

“We have won the order by way of our long-standing associate, TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete cargo handling techniques for the CO2 carriers,” said 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 systems for CO2 carriers because the late Nineties.
“Thanks to our expertise from the comparatively few CO2 ships constructed thus far, we are a part of the dialogue on several of the upcoming CCS (carbon capture & Storage) tasks. CCS is a focus area in our enterprise technique, and the order from TGE for Northern Lights is due to this fact of nice strategic significance. This might be a big marketplace for us inside the subsequent few years,” addedsaid Uhrenholt Nielsen.
