Shell Catalysts & Technologies and Technip Energies strengthen strategic alliance
This will help drive cost-effective, large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects by providing a combination of state-of-the-art technology and project management excellence.
Technip Energies recently joined Shell’s Energy Transition Campus Amsterdam (ETCA) to form a joint, co-located delivery team.
This follows Shell’s move to transform the site, previously known as Shell Technology Centre Amsterdam, into an open innovation campus and to invite external parties to co-locate there and work together to solve the world’s biggest energy challenges.
Over the next few years, the joint team stationed at ETCA will continue to work towards achieving strong improvements in cost reduction through joint value delivery and improvement programmes.
The strategic alliance is an integrated cooperative relationship for the joint promotion, marketing, licensing and execution of projects using Shell’s CANSOLV CO2 Capture System technology.
The two organisations, which have been working together since 2012, believe that, by enhancing their collaboration, they will be able to better respond to the rapidly growing CCS market and the need for affordable and proven solutions.
Yuri Sebregts, executive vice president Technology for Shell, said: “Our current cooperation has already unlocked several highly significant improvements. For example, we were able to find ways to make the CANSOLV technology less energy intensive and developed opportunities to modularise and standardise solutions. Consequently, we are able to offer lower capital and operating costs to our customers.”
Arnaud Pieton, CEO, Technip Energies, added: “Both organisations are recognised global energy leaders, bring complementary skills for CCS and share a similar, bold energy transition vision.”
