Sverdrup Steel deliver stainless steel plates and profiles to Aker Solutions for the Northern Lights CO2 transport and storage project, part of the Norwegian government’s Longship project. Plates and profiles are mainly in grade 1.4404/316L and supplied from its European partners with an average recycled content of more than 90%, resulting in a lower level of CO2e emissions and a minimal environmental impact.
The Northern Lights project aims to store liquefied CO2 offshore as a safe and permanent solution. The project will play a significant role in the Norwegian climate solution as it will initially enable capture and storage of 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 annually that would otherwise be emitted.
Liquefied CO2 will be transported from onshore industrial capture sources to storage offshore. The liquid CO2 will be injected 2.5 km under the seabed in the North Sea for permanent storage.
