New ground-breaking climate cooperation:

Port of Hirtshals will become hub for storing and shipping CO2 from biogas plants in North Jutland

Greenport North, CEO, Steen Hintze:
- There is enormous potential, both climate-wise and business-wise, for the whole of North Jutland in the agreement that has just been signed. Storing CO2 is an essential part of the solution to the climate challenges, and it will be possible to create new companies and jobs, not only in the port of Hirtshals, but in the entire North Jutland.

Peter Kristensen, director of strategy and development at Evida.
- Cost-effective transport of CO2 can support the development of a large-scale CO2 hub in North Jutland, which both contributes to meeting climate targets and supports business development in the area. Evida sees the development and establishment of piped CO2 infrastructure as the knob that can open the doors for just this. We are therefore very much looking forward to the collaboration in this ambitious project, which will create valuable knowledge and experience for all parties, and which will boost the development of a position of strength in North Jutland.

Klaus Langemann, Senior Vice President Carbon Management and Hydrogen in Wintershall Dea.
- Similar to Project Greensand, Greenport Scandinavia fits into our strategy of entering into significant international partnerships around CCS projects. In Greenport Scandinavia, we can contribute with our experience of the entire value chain to create a business model for CCS together with our strong Danish partners and thus support Europe's climate goals.

Jacob Kjærgaard, Regional Director Energy, Ports & Projects Europe, Blue Water Shipping:
- It is a fantastic project that we at Blue Water are delighted to be a part of. We are experts in the execution of transport and logistics, and we think it is very exciting to be able to help develop a new industry. As a global actor with local interest, we want to contribute positively to the green transition, and we therefore participate in various projects with a focus on the green transition and our energy transition.

Facts about CO2 storage
The different steps in CO2 storage are:

  • CO2 is captured: CO2 can be captured in many ways. It is most effective to capture it where there is a large and stable supply of CO2. For example, at emitters such as biogas plants, industry, energy production or incineration plants.

  • CO2 is liquefied: the captured CO2 is turned into liquid fluid. This can be done by both heating. Compression and cooling.

  • CO2 is transported: The liquid CO2 is transported by ships from Hirtshals to the storage areas int he North Sea.

  • CO2 is stored underground: Liquid CO2 is sent down into the sandstone reservoir approx. 1800 meters underground via CO2 wells.

  • CO2-storage is monitored: The fields for CO2 storage in the underground have been thoroughly screened over several years, and new and ground-breaking technologies are being developed for monitoring the CO2 storage.
