Mechanical Fabrication and Installation – Carbon Capture Plant Norcem Brevik

Project Description

The Aker CCS project in Brevik target an annual CO2 capture capacity of 400,000 tons. Most of the energy to capture CO2 is provided by waste heat recovery from existing cement production process. The CO2 capture facility will be integrated into the existing plant. In collaboration with Aker Carbon Capture, Norcem has tested the capture and purification of CO2 at the factory in Brevik. The tests and experiences have been successful where Aker Carbon Capture’s amine technology has been the basis for the project. The construction of the full-scale CCS plant will be completed in 2024.

NLI Scope

The work comprises prefabrication and installation of 1000 tonnes of pipework and steel structures as well as installation of mechanical equipment and large equipment packages and testing of the plant.

Pipework is the biggest activity with approx. 500 tonnes of carbon steel, stainless steel (SS304 and SS316), superduplex steel and polyethylene pipes, fittings and flanges.
Structural steel comprises approx. 500 tonnes of steel. Most steel works are prefabricated by our sub-contractor and shipped to Norway by Truck. Major steel assemblies will be assembled at Trosvik Industrial area in Brevik and shipped by barge to Norcem. Smaller assemblies will be shipped from Trosvik Industrial area by trucks. Process area piperacks will be pre-assembled with pipework installed at Trosvik Industrial area and shipped to Norcem by Barge. Minor constructions will be prefabricated at NLI/Trosvik facility in Brevik. The objective is to reduce stick building on site as far as possible.

There is 200+ Mechanical equipment of various sizes and shapes to be installed. This comprises installation of three WHRU units (9 modules). Suitable heavy-duty cranes and transport equipment are required for the biggest and heaviest equipment. This is outlined in detail later in this document. Schedule for installation is made in order to utilize such cranes effectively without un-necessary mobilisations and waiting time.
