Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has been awarded to undertake verification testing of a technology qualification programme (TQP) for the combined heat and power (CHP) plant at Mongstad on Norway’s west coast. The system is capable of recovering approximately 3,400 tonnes of CO2 per day.
MHI is up against other companies in the competition encompassing CO2 capture technology, facility performance, and construction and operation costs for the 280MW plant. Final decisions on construction of the plant will be made in 2016, following the ongoing front-end engineering and design (FEED) competition.
MHI is conducting testing of their CO2 recovery technology at a test facility at the Nanko Thermal Power Plant of Kasai Electric Power in Japan. Their technology, the KM CDR process, uses the company’s proprietary KS-1 solvent for CO2 absorption and desorption.
