Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) has been selected by Statoil, an international energy company with headquarters in Norway, to conduct verification testing for a technology qualification program (TQP) for one of the world's largest carbon dioxide (CO2) capture facilities, MHI announced on July 4.
The approximately 3,400 tons-per-day CO2 recovery system will be installed at a 280-megawatt (MW) gas-fired combined heat and power plant (CHP) 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.
The planned CO2 capture project is aimed at qualifying a design suitable for removing, capturing, compressing and storing CO2.
Plans call for a final decision on construction of the full-scale CO2 capture facility to be made around 2016.
