Aker Clean Carbon was demerged from Aker Solutions so Aker Solutions could concentrate on its core oil and gas business, said Liv Monica B. Stubholt, Aker Clean Carbon chief executive. She spoke during a Dec. 6 North Sea CCS conference hosted by the British and Norwegian consulates general offices in Houston.
Stubholt said Aker Clean Carbon provides technological expertise and project execution to energy companies. Aker Solutions developed âgreen technologyâ out of its traditional oil and gas business, she said.
Recently, Aker Clean Carbon was awarded a contract to conduct a feasibility study for EnBWâs new coal power plant in Karlsruhe, Germany. Aker Clean Carbon will supply process design and estimates for the capital investment and operational cost of a CO2 capture unit.
Elsewhere, Aker Clean Carbon is part of a consortium led by Scottish Power. The consortium is participating in the UK governmentâs competition to develop the UKâs first commercial carbon capture and storage project.
Aker Clean Carbon also is compiling a front-end engineering and design study for ENELâs Porto Tolle CO2 Capture Unit Project. The FEED study is scheduled for completion during the first quarter of 2011.
