Strategic partnership  to pioneer CO2 capture 

By Gerald Ondrey |

Alstom (Paris, France; www.alstom.com) has signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with StatoilHydro on behalf of the partners of the European CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) for a chilled ammonia (carbonate) CO2 capture plant at TCM in Norway. The demonstration plant will be the first one of its kind to treat flue gas from a gas-fired power plant. StatoilHydro ASA is the operator of the project and has signed the EPC contract on behalf of the TCM’s three partners,  Gassnova SF, StatoilHydro ASA and A/S Norske Shell.  Alstom will supply and install the demonstration plant, due to be operational in November 2011, which will use the company’s chilled ammonia post-combustion technology (for process details, see CE, April 2008, p. 13) to capture CO2 from the flue gases of a combined heat and power plant at Mongstad. It will also treat flue gases from a petroleum processing plant at the nearby Mongstad refinery, which has a CO2 output equal to that of a coal-fired power plant. The test results will consequently be of relevance to both gas- and coal-fired power plants. The TCM facility at Mongstad is the largest planned demonstration facility of its kind with an annual capacity to capture…
