Aker Carbon Capture and Ørsted, a global leader in renewable energy, have signed
the contract to develop a large-scale carbon capture project for the Ørsted
Kalundborg Hub in Denmark. Aker Carbon Capture will deliver five Just Catch
units, additional equipment such as liquefaction systems, and temporary CO2
storage and on-/offloading facilities with an expected total contract value
above EUR 200 million.
The carbon capture facilities will be delivered to Ørsted's wood chip-fired
Asnæs Power Station and the Avedøre Power Station's straw-fired boiler, where
today's signing ceremony took place. Combined, these facilities will have an
installed design capture capacity of 500,000 tonnes CO2 per year.
Aker Carbon Capture announced it had been awarded a large-scale
carbon capture project by Ørsted, a global leader in renewable energy, for its
Ørsted Kalundborg Hub in Denmark (see Aker Carbon Capture's announcement on 15
May 2023). This followed the 20-year contract award to Ørsted by the Danish
Energy Agency (DEA) for its carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, which was
officially signed on 31 May, after expiry of the mandatory standstill period.
The funding from the DEA will enable the realization of the first full-scale
carbon capture and storage value chain in Denmark, delivered by Ørsted, Aker
Carbon Capture, Microsoft and Northern Lights.
