Statkraft selects pre-FEED carbon capture tech suppliers
Statkraft Varme has operated district heat plants in Norway and Sweden since 1982 supplying over 1 TWh annually. In Norway, the company operates nine facilities, eight are biomass-fired and one, its facility in Trondheim is a waste-to-energy (WTE) plant (photo courtesy Statkraft Varme).

In Norway, renewable energy major Statkraft ASA has announced that it has engaged three technology providers to move forward with pre-front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) studies for carbon capture at its waste-to-energy facility in Trondheim.

Statkraft has an ongoing long-term project where the possibility of maturing and later realizing full-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) capture at its waste-to-energy (WtE)  facility in Trondheim by 2030 is being considered.

Nordic energy and infrastructure consultants Rambøll have been engaged to follow up on the studies and other related issues.

According to a statement, Statkraft has received offers from “numerous suppliers” in connection with the work on realizing CO2 capture in Trondheim but has recently decided to engage further with the Aker Carbon Capture Norway AS (ACC), Hitachi Zosen Inova AG (HZI), and Worley in partnership with MHI Group.

The Pre-FEED studies will be completed around autumn this year. By then, the selected companies will develop and present conceptually how they will design a CO2 capture facility at the Heimdal WtE.

The focus will be on environmental and safety aspects, design, and development of a robust cost estimate.

Once the studies are ready, Statkraft will have a decision basis to proceed to the next, and final, phase of the project before making a potential investment decision in 2027.

These early-phase studies are important, and it will be good to get started. At the same time, we must point out that Statkraft cannot proceed with the realization of CO2 capture in Trondheim until the necessary framework conditions are in place, commented Bjørn Hølaas, Director of CCS at Statkraft.
