Technip Energies has been awarded a large Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC) contract by Hafslund Oslo Celsio for a world-first carbon capture and storage (CCS) project at waste to energy plant located in Oslo, Norway. The project will be the first full-scale waste-to-energy plant in the world with CO2 capture. 400,000 tons per year of CO2 will be captured, and will reduce Oslo’s emissions by 17%. As part of the Longship project, the CO2 will then be liquified and exported to Northern Lights which is the first cross-border, open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure network.
The Carbon Capture plant will use the Shell CANSOLV® CO2 Capture System, a state-of-the-art amine-based technology for the capture of CO2 from the flue gas.
This EPC contract award follows several years of a joint journey with the completion of the design competition, the successful delivery and test of a pilot unit and continuous collaboration between Technip Energies and Hafslund Oslo Celsio to optimize project economics.
