Tata Steel EVEREST Project : McDermott wins FEED contract for CO2 capture project

Tagged with:

EVEREST Project : McDermott International has won a pre front-end engineering design (FEED) contract from Tata Steel for the latter’s Enhancing Value by Emissions Reuse and Emission Storage Project (EVEREST Project).

The project involves the capture of CO2 from Tata Steel’s blast furnaces in IJmuiden, the Netherlands, followed by its transportation for storage in empty gas fields in the .

Tata Steel has started the preparatory plans for the CO2 capture project, which is expected to offset CO2 emissions from the steelmaking site by 30%.

Details of the Tata Steel EVEREST Project

The Tata Steel EVEREST Project will consist of two phases, the first of which is a new CO2 capture facility to be built at Tata Steel before the gas is transported to the Athos pipeline network.

The pipeline network is a collaboration between EBN, Gasunie, Tata Steel, and Port of which would handle the transport, reuse, and storage of CO2 in the North Sea Canal area.

CO2 capture will offer the scope in the second phase, in collaboration with other industries, for the conversion of the remaining gases into usable raw materials. This can result in offsetting four million tonnes of CO2 a year, said Tata Steel.

Commenting on the Tata Steel EVEREST Project contract, Tareq Kawash – McDermott Senior Vice President, , Middle East, , said: “The combination of our innovative carbon capture and storage solutions with our unparalleled engineering capabilities demonstrate McDermott’s strategic role in reducing emissions and advancing the transition.

“Together, we will progress Tata Steel’s strategic roadmap toward carbon-neutral steel production by 2050.”

McDermott will carry out the engineering and design for the CO2 project from its office in The Hague.

Annemarie Manger – Tata Steel Europe Director of Sustainability, Health, Safety, Environment and Quality, commenting on Tata Steel EVEREST Project, said: “This intended construction is a very important step for our future.

“We feel a strong responsibility to build a sustainable and connected society for the generations of tomorrow. If we realize this, we will be one of the first steel companies to capture CO2 with its storage. We see this as the essential transition solution with which we contribute significantly to the required emission reduction by 2030.

“The potential of this is enormous. This technology is already being used in other countries and industries, but not yet in this form and size.”
