Svanehøj to supply pumps for Northern Lights CO2 carriers

Proven experience with CO2 pumps makes the difference: Svanehøj is chosen as the supplier of cargo pump systems for two Northern Lights CO2 carriers.


Svanehøj has been awarded a contract to supply cargo pump systems for two CO2 carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the Northern Lights storage facilities in Norway.


The order is placed by TGE Marine, which designs and delivers complete Cargo Handling Systems for the CO2 carriers.


“TGE has chosen our deepwell cargo gas pumps, which they are very familiar with from numerous LPG tankers”, says Thomas Uhrenholt Nielsen, Sales Director, Cargo Gas at Svanehøj.


Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters in Norway and other European countries 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 metres under the seabed.


Operations are scheduled to start in 2024. The two CO2 carriers are being built at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China. Both vessels will have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2. Svanehøj will deliver two deepwell cargo pumps of 15 metres for each ship.


In this project, Svanehøj's multigas technology will be shown to its full potential, as the customer wants the pumps to also be used for handling LPG natural gas. Over the years, Svanehøj has supplied cargo pump systems to more than 1,100 LPG tankers around the world.
