Ørsted picks Danish facility for CCS venture in North Sea

The utility will use combined power and heating plants in Avedøre and Asnæs for capturing 400,000 tonnes of CO2 starting from 2025. The latter will also capture CO2 from the Kalundborg Refinery for storage in the North Sea, according to the plan.

Ørsted plans to include the wood chip-fired Asnæs Power Station as well as the straw-fired unit at Avedøre Power Station in its carbon capture plans once the company will begin capturing 400,000 tonnes of CO2 annually starting from 2025.

In late May, EnergyWatch reported that Ørsted planned to make a bid for the CCS tender, which will play a key role for Denmark’s climate ambitions. Monday morning, the Danish utility discloses additional details concerning its plans in a press release.
