Siemens to cooperate with Finnish  CCS project

By Gerald Ondrey |

Siemens Energy (Erlangen, Germany; www.siemens.com/energy) has been selected as the capture technology partner for the FINNCAP – Meri-Pori carbon capture and storage (CCS) project by the owners of Meri-Pori power plant, Finnish utilities Fortum (www.fortum.com) and Teollisuuden Voima Oyj (TVO; www.tvo.fi). The coal-fired power plant is located at Pori in Western Finland and has an installed capacity of 565 MW. The CCS demonstration is planned to treat approximately 50% of Meri-Pori’s fluegas and to capture 90% of the CO2 it contains. Therefore it reduces the plant’s CO2 emissions by some 1.25 million tonnes annually. Meri-Pori’s CCS demonstration is among the largest post-combustion capture projects yet announced in Europe. Fortum and TVO plan to apply for the European Flagship Program with Siemens capture technology combined to a ship transportation and geological storage solution. The selection for the first tranche of the Flagship Program is expected to take place in 2011 and the final investment decision in 2011–2012. The plant is scheduled to be in operation in 2015. Developing CO2 capture technology at Meri-Pori power plant supports Fortum’s and TVO’s targets in climate change mitigation.…
