Significant interest for available site
A number of companies have expressed an interest to use the available area, utilities and other infrastructure of TCM towards construction and testing of further carbon capture technologies. This further strenghtens TCM's position as the world's most advanced test facility.
- Our amine CO2 capture plant is the largest, most comprehensive and flexible test facility in the world. We have received requests for the re-use of our amine plant after the initial test period. In addition we have received applications from 15 owners of emerging technologies to demonstrate them at our available area tied in with our unique and robust infrastructure at Mongstad, TCMs managing director Frank Ellingsen says.
The Requests for Interest was sent out in Spring 2012 and the deadline for acceptance of invitation was extended until July 1, 2013. Interested parties and vendors can participate in a negotiated tender process for using the available area, utilities and other infrastructure of TCM towards construction and testing of further carbon capture technology.
