MHI awarded concept study for large CO2-recovery facility in Norway  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; www.mhi.co.jp) has been awarded by Statoil, an international energy company with headquarters in Norway, to undertake a concept study for a technology qualification program (TQP) for one of the world’s largest carbon dioxide capture facilities. The approximately 3,400 ton/d CO2 recovery system is targeted for installation at a 280-MW gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant at Mongstad, on Norway’s west coast. MHI will vie against other companies in a competition encompassing CO2 capture technology, facility performance, and construction and operation costs, towards facility construction slated to commence in 2016. The planned CO2 capture project is aimed at removing, capturing and compressing CO2 emitted from an existing natural-gas-fired CHP plant in operation since 2010 at an oil refinery operated by Statoil at Mongstad. The objective of the TQP is to evaluate the viability of various CO2 capture technologies for possible adoption at the facility. MHI is one of several companies that were awarded verification testing of their technologies in June in the Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) phase. In the concept study, each company will create a plant design reflecting…
