Dear LINCCS newsletter readers,

Since our kick-off in mid-February earlier this year, and after detailed scoping and mobilisation, all four technical subprojects have now gained momentum. The administrative and commercial subproject is also well in hand. For me as the project manager, it is a pleasure to see the enthusiasm and involvement of subproject managers and their teams, as well as the good collaboration efforts both across subprojects and amongst the 13 participating companies. We have also experienced strong involvement and support from Innovation Norway and the Research Council.

Our focus is now on concluding the partial deliveries for 2022, and after that, we’re all looking forward to a well-deserved Christmas vacation!

We hope you enjoy this first issue of our newsletter – and that it gives you a taste of what’s coming next!

Innovations in CCS and the development of large-scale, cost-effective offshore CO₂ storage

In this article, Francesco Finotti lays out the latest technological initiatives, projects and companies that are contributing the developing CCS value chain (originally published in New Energy World magazine, published by Energy Institute).

"A key challenge for the future of CCS is to connect risk capital to innovators and opportunities to businesses in a timely manner. Decades of research with CCS have advanced promising technologies to the demonstration stage. Now that CCS is becoming an industrial reality, there is a strong need to bridge the technological “valley of death” that characterizes innovation – in other words, the gap between pilot testing and commercial deployment."

Wärtsilä, one of the LINCCS partners, has established a world-class research centre for maritime carbon capture and storage (CCS) in record time in Moss, Norway. The test facility enables Wärtsilä to mimic a ship installation with engines and various abatement equipment, such as a sulphur oxide (SOx) scrubber, nitrogen oxide (NOx) selective catalytic reducers, and particulate matter filters. Together, this creates a unique setting for developing technological solutions that enable a more sustainable maritime industry.

LINCCS at Trondheim Tech Port

The theme of the conference this year was “bridging the gap” – which, in this case, refers to the gap between public administrations, start-up companies and policy makers. By connecting these different actors, Trondheim Tech Port aimed to act as an arena for sustainable innovation.

This theme was incredibly relevant to LINCCS, with its main goal of uniting actors on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in order to accelerate CCS deployment.

NCS C+ kick-off: LINCCS’ associated KSP gets started

On 24 June 2022, LINCCS’ associated project The Norwegian Continental Shelf: A Driver for Climate-Positive Norway (NCS C+) held its kick-off event in Trondheim, Norway.

“This kick-off is a key step in bringing the whole NCS C+ team together in order to better understand the critical combination of the work that will be undertaken to meet the 1.5˚C-target, as well as the importance of supporting the development of four climate-positive solutions considered in NCS C+,” said Simon Roussanaly, research scientist at SINTEF Energy Research and leader of the NCS C+ project.
