Linking large-scale, cost-effective, permanent offshore CO2 storage across the CCS value chain

First LINCCS management team-building meeting takes place at Wärtsilä

On 24 October, LINCCS project and sub-project leaders and the SP5 team travelled to Wärtsilä‘s facilities in Moss, Norway for a team-building meeting.

The meeting was organised as part of the “Project management, value chains and taxonomy alignment” sub-project (SP5), which works across sub-projects throughout the project to ensure a smooth project execution, a continuous alignment with taxonomy and commercialisation of results.

The main aim of the meeting was to gather the LINCCS management and SP5 team in one place in order to promote organic discussions and strengthen internal collaboration.

One of the main topics discussed was the opportunities to be explored and challenges to be mitigated throughout the project.

For example, LINCCS has a real opportunity to both significantly lower the cost of CO2 capture and storage, and rapidly mature technological concepts by facilitating collaboration between operators, vendors and researchers on the Norwegian continental shelf. The parties possess complementary knowledge that, when utilized, enable them to achieve more together than they would be able to alone.

However, a related challenge to this is that sharing information between partners can sometimes be restricted by internal or external forces, which can impact overall collaboration efforts. During the meeting, participants discussed practical ways of counteracting this problem, such as maintaining an open dialogue between project members.

“It was fantastic to meet so many people face-to-face,” said SP5 Leader Rikard Kinn from Aker Solutions. “LINCCS is one of the bigger Green Platform projects, with 15 partners in total – so it’s important that we come together and remind ourselves of our common goal.”
