A global provider of gas turbines has awarded Capsol Technologies a pre-FEED (Front-End Engineering Design) study to develop a customised CapsolGT® carbon capture solution for several gas turbine types in open cycle application. The project aims to create a standardised plant design, outlining commercial details and technical performance for the deployment of CapsolGT® in North America and the Middle East.
The engineering work will be executed by Audubon Engineering Company, L.P., a leading provider of integrated engineering, construction, procurement, fabrication, and technical services in the United States.
CapsolGT® is a carbon capture solution for open cycle gas turbines (used for electricity production and industrial purposes) ranging from 4 MWe to 100+ MWe (megawatts electric). Utilising the waste heat of the gas turbine, the capture plant removes 95%+ of the carbon dioxide in the flue gas while generating additional electricity. This standalone solution is also advantageous in remote locations, avoiding the need for extensive cooling, external steam import and fresh water supply.
'This order marks another important milestone of the commercialisation of our CapsolGT® carbon capture solution and is in line with our strategy to partner with gas turbine manufacturers. Looking at the North American market, CapsolGT® has the potential for capture, transport and storage costs below USD 85 per
tonne of CO2. This addresses the needs of gas turbine operators looking for an economically viable carbon capture solution. The results of the Pre-FEED study will be presented to gas turbine operators and project developers in Q2 2024,' says Philipp Staggat, Chief Product Officer of Capsol Technologies ASA.
