Aker Carbon Capture (ACC) – a Norwegian carbon capture development company, has rolled up its sleeves with three major new deals. The company has secured the deals through sister company Aker Solutions. Aker Carbon Capture has decided to partner with Honeywell, Siemens Energy and Doosan Babcock to roll out research and project operations in Europe.
Aker Carbon Capture Deals
The company announced March 29th it will use Honeywell’s software for R&D in key project operations. Honeywell’s expertise in process simulation solutions would benefit ACC with research and design tasks to achieve the sustainability targets.
“Honeywell software helps make some of the world’s largest buildings and industrial facilities safer, more sustainable and more efficient,” said Stuart Morstead, VP and GM for Honeywell Connected Industrial. “We are pleased to be bringing our software solutions to Aker Carbon Capture as we work together to help Europe meet its carbon neutrality goals.”
ACC announced March 23rd that it signed a memorandum of understanding with Siemens Energy. They will work jointly together for carbon capture solutions that can be applied to gas turbines and gas-fired power plants. They will explore opportunities first in the European market for new and existing low-carbon power generation.
“Combining more than 20 years of history in developing carbon capture solutions with Siemens Energy’s decades of industry leadership in power solutions, will bring valuable benefits for our clients and society,” said CCO of Aker Carbon Capture, Jon Christopher Knudsen.
A Growing Partnership
Back in February this year, the two companies were selected by Vattenfall to oversee the Norfolk offshore wind project located in the North Sea. The aim of the consortium of Aker and Siemens is to deliver HVDC converter platforms for the grid connection infrastructure.
Another partnership was announced March 25th between Aker Solutions and engineering and construction company Doosan Babcock. The duo agreed to jointly deliver sustainable energy projects in the UK.
They aim to win contracts for new hydrogen production plants and facilities for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS). The combination would offer full engineering, procurement, construction and installation solutions for the UK’s energy transition agenda.
Europe is planning to scale up carbon capture across the continent. Aker Carbon Capture is making deals with key energy companies to take advantage of the growing market and improving business climate for CCUS projects on the continent.
