General – CCS
Storing CO2 is an essential part of the solution to climate challenges. With a group of partners, Blue Water Shipping has taken a big step towards realizing a project with great climate potential.
The partners have signed an agreement to investigate the possibility of establishing transport of CO2 from biogas plants in North Denmark, temporary storage facilities in the Port of Hirtshals and shipping to the North Sea, where the CO2 will be injected into the subsoil.
The project, named Greenport Scandinavia, thus involves the entire value chain for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
“It is a fantastic project that we at Blue Water are delighted to be a part of. We are transport and logistics experts and are super excited to be part of developing a new industry. As a global operator with local interests, we want to contribute to the green transition, which is why we participate in various projects focusing on climate and energy transition,” says Jacob Kjærgaard, Regional Director Energy, Ports & Projects Europe, Blue Water Shipping.
The partners are INEOS Energy, Wintershall DEA, Hirtshals Havn, Biocarb Solution, Evida, Greenport North and Blue Water Shipping. The project is the first of its kind in Denmark.
Since the CO2 is biogenic, the storage will result in negative emissions, which can make a significant contribution to achieving the Danish climate goals of a 70 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
