The ‘Best Plant Engineering’ projects from all around the globe have been showcased here. Right from developing the first full-scale zero carbon-emissions steel plant in the world to building the world’s largest polyethylene integration project, find out all the projects making headlines here.
Equinor and SSE Thermal have plans to develop a world-leading hydrogen storage facility in Yorkshire, UK. The collaboration is claimed to be UK’s first end-to-end low-carbon hydrogen proposal connecting production, storage and demand projects in the North of England.
Equinor has signed an agreement to sell its refining business in Denmark to the Klesch Group. The move will enable Equinor to focus on its strategy of strengthening its refining position around Mongstad, Norway.
The consortium – the Zero Carbon Humber Partnership includes 12 companies and organisations which have recently submitted a joint proposal to develop a net zero industrial cluster in the Humber, the UK’s largest and most carbon-intensive industrial region. The breakthrough project is expected to be completed by 2040.
The mega project, Hydrogen to Humber Saltend (H2H Saltend), is expected to produce hydrogen from natural gas and will also utilise the carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. With this project, the UK aims to develop the world’s first net zero cluster by 2040.
Statoil, on behalf of the Johan Sverdrup partnership, signed a letter of intent with Aibel for the construction of the processing platform topside for phase 2 of the project. A letter of intent for field centre modifications was also issued to a joint venture of Aker Solutions and Kværner. Total value is estimated at more than $ 1.4 billion.
Statoil has established an integrated operations support centre and a drilling operations centre in Bergen. The centres will be connected to all Statoil installations on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS), starting this year.
