TGE Marine Gas Engineering GmbH (TGE Marine) has earlier this year been awarded the engineering, procurement, construction and supervision (EPCS) contract for two CO2 carriers that will transport liquid CO2 to the new Northern Lights CO2 storage facility, says a press release on their website.
Northern Lights is developing infrastructure to transport CO2 by ship from industrial emitters in Norway and other European countries to a receiving terminal in western Norway for intermediate storage before being further transported by pipeline for permanent storage in a geological reservoir 2,600 metres under the seabed.
The first two CO2 carriers are being built for this purpose at Dalian Shipbuilding (DSIC) in China and are expected to be operational in 2024.
TGE Marine’s EPCS contract covers the complete CO2 Gas Handling System as well as commissioning activities. The vessels will each have a capacity of 7,500 m3 of liquid CO2.
Challenging new developments
Since its establishment in 1980, TGE Marine has been on the forefront of several New Tech developments in the Marine industry, from being the first company in the world to be contracted for the design, construction and commissioning of the largest Eth-ylene/Ethane carrier to delivering the world’s biggest LNG fuel gas system for a large crane vessel.
TGE Marine has decades of engineering expertise to be able to support these types of challenging new developments, whether it is in the field of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), Floating LNG (FLNG) storage units or the use of LNG as fuel.
TGE Marine’s Sales Manager Johannes Dziuba comments ‘We are both pleased and honoured to be working on these first-in-their-class ships and look forward to success-fully deliver the best end result for the client to see these ships in operation’.
