TECO 2030 and AVL move ahead with maritime CO2 capture study

Apr 17 2021


The study will focus on vessel capabilities and robustness of the technology.

TECO 2030 said it is excited over the response regarding CCS technology for ships and the increased focus from shipowners regarding the IMO GHG strategies and tools like Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) makes on-board carbon capture highly interesting.

The CCS technology will be integrated as part of the TECO 2030 Future Funnel and will be a central add-on technology optimizing decarbonization and ensuring efficient vessel operation.

“The carbon capture and storage is very attractive for shipowners who seek to future proof their vessels to meet GHG regulations and strategies. Conventionally fueled vessels will still make up the majority of the global fleet and on-board carbon capture will constitute a viable choice in decarbonizing this segment of the fleet,” says Stian Aakre, CEO of TECO 2030 AS.

TECO 2030 aims to tackle one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time: how to combine growing global shipping volumes with reduced emissions. The company believes the shipping industry can move to zero emissions by implementing new technologies, with hydrogen-based fuel cells as the ultimate solution. 

AVL List GmbH is the world's largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of all types of powertrain systems.
