MAN Energy Solutions will supply three integrally-geared compressor trains (IGC) to what is believed to be the first large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in the Netherlands.
Called Porthos, the project aims to store 2.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually in exhausted natural gas reservoirs under the North Sea. The captured CO2 will be sourced from various companies in the Rotterdam port area, which accounts for over 16% of Dutch CO2 emissions.
Once captured, the CO2 will be compressed by MAN Energy Solutions’ technology, and then transported and injected into a sealed reservoir of porous sandstone over three kilometres beneath the North Sea.
The Port of Rotterdam Authority, Energie Beheer Nederland B.V. (EBN) and N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie are all jointly conducting the project.
