Iberdrola
Date: 2020-09-09
Spanish utility Iberdrola SA is reporting progress in the development of Saint Brieuc, its first commercial-scale offshore wind project in Brittany.

The €2.4 billion, 62-turbine project is expected to generate sufficient power for 835,000 people and avoid 100,000 tpy of CO2 emissions.

An Eiffage Metal and Engie Solutions JV will be in charge of the engineering and construction of the project's substation foundation and topside that houses the transformers and electrical equipment. ENGIE Solutions will carry out final assembly work and commissioning tests.

Fabrication work will be carried out by Eiffage in Belgium and Poland with a scheduled completion date early in 2022.

Over the next four years, Iberdrola notes it plans to invest up to €4 billion in offshore wind over the next four years. The company presently has operating facilities in the Irish Sea, in German waters of the Baltic and in the North Sea. The company has an installed capacity of 32,695 MW and a renewable energy project pipeline exceeding 58,000 MW, according to the news release.

Flanders Commits €400Mn to CCS, CCU Initiative (Int'l Report)
Arcelor Mittal
Date: 2019-03-25
Reporting from Antwerp, the Flemish government reports the approval of a plan to spend €400 million over the next 20 years in an effort to manage carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions and to become climate neutral by 2050. The plan calls for a reduction in fossil fuels consumption while implementing carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilization (CCU) of CO2 that is still being produced. Although CCS and CCU technology is not new it is expensive, and there is no related income from CCS for climate protection.

The Flemish government is interested in CCU, an example of which is a pilot project launched in Ghent last week between steel producer Arcelor Mittal and chemicals manufacturer Dow, to split the carbon monoxide and CO₂ from steel production and use the CO₂ to produce bio-ethanol, a renewable energy source.

In another example, energy provider Engie has joined with waste incinerator Indeval to use CO2 capture to produce ethanol in Antwerp. (Source: Various Media, Brussels Times, Apr, 2019)
