GE Vernova and Northern Lights sign MoU to explore CCS opportunities

Jun 12 2023

According to the MOU, both companies will develop technical and logistical solutions to capture, transport, and store carbon dioxide which will be crucial to the development of an effective CCS supply chain.

GE Vernova’s Gas Power business and Northern Lights will work together to enable acceleration and development of end-to-end carbon capture and storage solutions, including carbon dioxide capture, transportation, and storage applied to power plants powered by GE gas turbines.

“CCS is a necessary solution to reduce emissions from the power and heat market in the EU. While green energy solutions such as solar and wind power are being developed, CCS contributes to reducing or removing emissions from hard-to-abate industries where limited alternatives are available. The collaboration between Northern Lights and GE seeks to reduce emissions from the power generation sector,” said Martijn Smit, Business Development Director at Northern Lights.

GE believes CCS technologies will play a crucial role in reducing carbon emissions in the power generation sector and has developed relationships with providers and customers to advance innovation including agreements with Linde, Technip, NetZero Teesside, and Southern Company. 

“At GE we are continually advancing our power generation technologies towards near zero-carbon emissions, and this evolution includes the use of carbon capture and sequestration in order to drastically reduce CO2 emissions in the critical effort to mitigate climate change,” said Martin O’Neill, Vice President of Strategy for GE Gas Power. “We look forward to collaborating with Northern Lights on the development of compatible CO2 transfer systems, in support of our mutual goal of reducing carbon emissions from gas-fired power plants, which provide crucially reliable, affordable, and resilient electricity for homes and businesses worldwide.”

GE Vernova also recently produced a documentary on CCUS in Norway – Carbon Capture's future in Norway - 'Powering Tomorrow'.
