Wartsila Joins Maritime Carbon Capture Consortium (Int'l.)
Wartsila
Date: 2021-09-10
Helsinki-headquartered Wartsila reports it will take a central role in developing maritime carbon capture & storage (CCS) technologies as one of the leading partners in the LINCCS (linking carbon capture and storage) consortium.

Wartsila Exhaust Treatment is the market leading modular marine exhaust gas cleaning system manufacturer, with a range of lifecycle scrubbing solutions. The treatment offers integrated compliant solutions for all types of ships, and in open loop, closed loop or hybrid configurations.

To support CCS technology development, Wartsila Exhaust Treatment will expand its engineering facility in Moss, Norway to develop, test and verify the CCS solutions. This will bring the technology to a maturity level where it can be piloted in full scale on a vessel.

The LINCCS project is focused on reducing costs for new carbon storage facilities by 70 pct and advancing the development of carbon capture technologies in a range of sectors. This week, it was announced that the LINCCS consortium would receive 111m Norwegian kroner in funding over the next three years from the Norwegian government's Green Platform Initiative.

Wartsila will lead this workstream with support from the Sustainable Energy Catapult Center and SINTEF Energy to contribute to wider, cross-industry CCS developments from project partners including Aker Solutions, Cognite, Aize, AGR, OpenGoSim, Wintershall Dea, Var Energi, Lundin, Equinor and TotalEnergies.
