It is hardly a secret to say that Northern Lights is developing the world’s first open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure.
News about the Northern Lights development – with a first phase storage capacity of 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per annum – is often widely carried by the press.
Northern Lights is part of the Longship project, which reflects the Norwegian Government’s ambition to develop a full-scale CCS value chain in Norway.
With support of the Norwegian Government and owners Equinor, Shell, and TotalEnergies, Northern Lights provides realistic decarbonisation opportunities for Norwegian and European industries.
And now the company has indicated on social media that production of the first two Northern Lights ships is more than 60% completed.
“Great to see the tremendous progress and what was once simple illustrations now coming to life,” the update ran.
The sister ships have a cargo capacity of 7,500 m3 and will set sail in 2024
