Capital Power Corporation is teaming up with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group and Kiewit Energy Group in an ambitious carbon capture project aiming to capture 3 million tons of CO2 per year.
The project titled the Genesee CCS Project is located at Capital Power’s Genesee Generating Station in Alberta, Canada.
At this stage, the partnership is formed to conduct a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study for the project and thus, supporting the commercial application of CCS technology.
Once in operation, the CCS project is expected to capture as much as 95% of the carbon dioxide emitted from the natural gas plant.
MHI Group’s approach uses amine-based solvent technology, which is responsible for the high carbon capture efficiency.
In turn, MHI has partnered with Kiewit to proceed with the subsequent stage of engineering and design for the Genesee CCS project.
Until then, however, the FEED study has, among other things, yet to determine the project’s overall performance expectations and establish the initial design for its integration with the natural gas units.
