2 million work hours without any serious incidents
The development of CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad is now near 60 percent complete and the project just passed the 2 million work hours milestone without any serious incidents.
- We are very pleased with these HSE results (Health, Safety and Environment) and I will commend all the people who have contributed to this good result, says Sverre Overå, Statoil's project manager for the TCM Project.
He says that already in the contract award phase, they only picked suppliers with an excellent HSE record. Also, the project team has been closely following up on the suppliers in the construction phase.
These days large prefabricated structures are arriving on site, and are being installed. The carbon capture plants are really taking shape. Soon more than 700 workers will be engaged at the ten soccer field large construction site at Mongstad.
TCM will test two different technologies, from Aker Clean Carbon and Alstom, respectively, for capture of CO2 from two flue gas sources with different CO2 content. The objective of the testing is in part to qualify the technologies for large-scale cleaning of exhaust gas, while simultaneously developing cost-effective technology solutions.
Technology Centre Mongstad is the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture. Knowledge gained will prepare the ground for CO2 capture initiatives to combat climate change. TCM is a joint venture between the Norwegian state, Statoil, Shell and Sasol
