Alstom awarded concept study for Mongstad

2012-11-19 12:57 by Anja Reitz

The commissioned study includes a cost estimate for the erection and operation of a full-scale CO2 capture plant based on Alstom’s proprietary chilled ammonia process (CAP). Mongstad is the location of the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM), which is the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture technology.

This study is the third phase of the “Technology Qualification Program” being undertaken for the CO2 Capture Mongstad (CCM) project. During the first phase Alstom successfully executed a feasibility study for the project.

During the second phase of the program, which is currently on-going, Alstom continues to demonstrate with its own plant the application of the company’s CAP technology for flue-gases coming from a gas-fired power plant. This second phase establishes the basis for the study now awarded.
