Aker Solutions has since the 1990s pioneered engineering projects in carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). With a strong experience across the carbon value chain, our expertise and capabilities span from front end to engineering, construction, installation and maintenance.
Our track record dates back to the Sleipner CO2-storage platform delivery in the 1990s to the Snøhvit CO2 project and the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the amine plant at the CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad, Norway – the world’s largest and most advanced facility for testing carbon capture technologies.
We are technology agnostic and work with different technology partners for CO2 capture technologies. Our main partner is Aker Carbon Capture. Through our global experience and extensive EPC track record with onshore plants and strong expertise in subsea systems, we deliver commercially ready and cost-effective carbon capture, transport, storage and injection solutions.
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.
In 2020, we received a contract from Aker Carbon Capture to provide detail engineering for the construction of a carbon capture facility at Norcem’s cement plant in Brevik, Norway. The development in Brevik is part of the Longship project. It also includes the Northern Lights carbon capture and storage project, which will see the development of a permanent CO2 storage facility on the seabed off the west coast of Norway. Aker Solutions has also been awarded a contract from Equinor to deliver the CO2 receiving facilities for Northern Lights, as well as subsea equipment for injecting captured CO2 into the reservoir for permanent storage.
Recently, we formed a consortium with Siemens Energy and Doosan Babcock with more than 450 years of combined experience to execute gas power projects with carbon capture and other subprojects for the growing UK market.
We are also supporting the deployment of a more cost-effective CCS value chain, by focusing on a modular approach of system blocks and accelerating the integration of CCS technologies at scale. The LINCCS project, which received funding from the Research Council of Norway, aims at cutting costs by 70 percent for new carbon storage facilities. This will be achieved through optimization of the CO2 value chain, with focus on transport and large-scale permanent storage of carbon after it is captured.
