Technip awarded contract for Norwegian CCS project
French Technip Energies said July 4 it had been awarded what it characterised as a “large” engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Norway’s Hafslund Oslo Celsio, which is developing a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project at a waste-to-energy plant in Oslo.
Technip said “large” contracts represent revenue in the €250-€500mn range.
The facility will be the first full-scale waste-to-energy plant in the world with CO2capture capabilities, capturing 400,000 metric tons/year of CO2 and reducing Oslo’s emissions by 17%. As part of Norway’s Longship CCS project, captured CO2 will be liquefied and exported for sequestration via the Northern Lights network.
The facility will use Shell’s amine-based CANSOLV CO2 flue gas capture system, which Shell used at its Quest CCS project in Canada and which has since been refined.
“Norway is at the forefront of decarbonisation initiatives and, by being part of Hafslund Oslo Celsio project, we will contribute to one of the two projects of Longship, the very first phase of Northern Lights,” Technip Energies CEO Arnaud Pieton said. “We are committed to leverage our strong expertise in CO2 management, our local presence and our alliance with Shell to successfully deliver this ground-breaking project, a key milestone towards a low-carbon future.”
