How Aker Solutions works with CCS
Aker Solutions has delivered pioneering projects in CCUS for more than three decades. The company partners with leading technology providers to deliver viable and scalable solutions for large and complex developments across the entire CCS value chain.
Aker Solutions’ CCS journey began in the 1990s, when it delivered the Sleipner Vest CO2 storage platform, and the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the amine plant at the CO2 Technology Centre in Mongstad, Norway – the world’s largest and most advanced facility for testing CO2 capture technologies.
Currently, Aker Solutions is involved in all phases of the Norwegian government’s Longship project, the world’s first project for establishing full-scale CO2 capture, transport and storage facilities in line with the country’s international climate agreements. Aker Solutions is providing detailed engineering for the construction of a CO2 capture facility in Brevik, Norway, as well as the CO2 receiving facilities and subsea equipment for injection for Northern Lights.
The company is also executing FEEDs for CCS at the Net Zeo Teeside, Keadby 3 and Northern Lights phase II developments.
