The offshore support fleet, crucial for the oil and gas operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, faces a pressing need for decarbonization. Platform supply vessels (PSVs) contribute ca 1 million tonnes of CO2 annually, making them the largest greenhouse gas source in the offshore logistics supply chain. The government’s directive to implement zero- and low-emission solutions by 2030 sets the stage for transformative change.
Nothing’s better than a cold drink. But how long does it take to to cool a drink in the freezer, fridge, snow, sink or ice bath?
On 20 November, the Green Platform project Ammonia Fuel Bunkering Network (AFBN) held a seminar in Trondheim. With 20 participants, the purpose was…
Heat pump technology is on the march, with the European Heat Pump Summit revealing significant trends in refrigerant choices, the rise of smart AI-based controls for grid stabilisation, increased social and political recognition for decarbonisation, and breakthroughs in high-temperature pump efficiency.
Drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions won’t be enough to achieve the goals in the Paris agreement and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. We will also need to remove excess greenhouse gases, in particular CO2, from the atmosphere and oceans. This is known as “carbon dioxide removal” (CDR).
Carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS) is a crucial technological solution for reducing CO2 emissions and achieving the climate goals outlined in the Paris Agreement. It can play a significant role in decarbonising industrial sectors, and producing “clean” hydrogen. However, we still need standards and infrastructure for the large-scale CO2 transport and storage.
