COMPACTS aims to develop technology that can help Norway and other oil and gas producing countries reach their climate goals.
An op-ed was written in the Norwegian business newspaper Dagens Næringsliv on May 15th, 2015. The article sketches details on how to implement combined cycles offshore recovering wasted heat from the gas tubines used for power production. This can reduce offshore emissions by about 21-25 %.
The goal of COMPACTS is to improve the offshore combined cycles to lower their weight by up to 50 %. The project also aims to improve operational reliability so that combined cycles can be installed as standard equipment offshore like they are onshore rather than being the exception they are today.
