Technip Energies (PARIS:TE) Loading Systems will supply the world-first liquefied CO2 Marine Loading Arms to Aker Solutions as part of the Northern Lights carbon capture project in Norway.

The offloading solution will be installed in Norway and will consist of 3 Marine Loading Arms fully qualified to transfer liquefied CO2. They will be equipped with Technip Energies Loading Systems’ enhanced connection solution, the Easydrive. This unique solution on the market allows proportional rectilinear command, simplifying the operators’ experience, hence improving the transfer operations’ safety and performance as well as increasing the availability of the asset.

Bertrand Chupin, Vice-President of Technip Energies Loading Systems, commented: “We are very proud of this world-first project which reaffirms our pioneering spirit and our efforts towards decarbonization. We are looking forward to contribute to the prestigious Northern Lights project and hence further support the transition towards a low-carbon society.”

The Northern Lights project is the transport and storage component of Longship, the Norwegian Government’s full-scale carbon capture and storage project. After being captured and liquefied at various industrial sites, liquid CO2 will be shipped to an import terminal in western Norway. There, Technip Energies Marine Loading Arms will be used to offload the product for intermediate storage, before being transported offshore by pipeline for permanent storage in a reservoir under the seabed.

Northern Lights is owned by Equinor, Shell and TotalEnergies who are equal joint venture partners, with Equinor as project lead and operator.
