Technip Energies has been selected by Horisont Energi to perform a concept study for the design of the landmark Barents Blue carbon-neutral ammonia plant in Hammerfest, northern Norway.

The planned facilities will include Europe’s first large-scale blue ammonia plant, building upon Haldor Topsøe’s SynCOR AmmoniaTM technology. More than 99% of the CO2 will be captured during the production process and stored. The storage will be done by transporting all CO2 offshore where it will be injected into a large geological reservoir under the seabed.

Marco Villa, Chief Operating Officer of Technip Energies, said: “We are very pleased to have been selected by Horisont Energi for the prestigious Barents Blue project. We are committed to leverage our technology integration expertise and the long-standing collaboration with Haldor Topsøe to further accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon future. Thanks to our pioneering spirit and our unique track record of successful delivery of iconic modular projects in winterized environments, we will be able to fully support Horisont Energi towards the project final investment decision.”

Ammonia has numerous industrial applications, including in fertilizer production, and is currently the world's second-most used industrial gas, with an established infrastructure for shipping throughout the globe. In the future, ammonia is also expected to be used as a climate-neutral fuel, especially in the maritime industry and for climate-neutral power production.
