The overall objective of this project is to implement a safe and economic Carbon Capture and Storage system on board the Sleipnir in order to virtually eliminate carbon emissions while running on LNG, without jeopardizing operational performance and capabilities. Preliminary results show that up to 80% of all carbon emissions can be captured on board Sleipnir while working offshore, although the exact details and optimal economic performance of the plant have yet to be determined.
Heerema aims to participate in industry studies over the coming years to establish technical feasibility. Since the beginning of 2021, Heerema is participating in the EverLoNG project, which is supervised by TNO. In case of technical feasibility and economic viability, a full-scale CCS plant could be installed by 2024.
