McDermott Bags Tata Steel Project EVEREST PreFEED Contract
McDermott International has been awarded a Pre Front-End Engineering Design contract from Tata Steel BV for the Enhancing Value by Emissions
Reuse and Emission Storage EVEREST Project. Tata Steel has launched the preparatory plans for a project to capture CO2 from its blast furnaces in IJmuiden, the Netherlands, and transport it for storage in empty gas fields under the North Sea. The project is planned for implementation at the Tata Steel facilities in IJmuiden, which is located 19 miles West of Amsterdam.
Tata Steel Europe Director of Sustainability, Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Annemarie Manger said "This intended construction is a very important step for our future. We feel a strong responsibility to build a sustainable and connected society for the generations of tomorrow. If we realize this, we will be one of the first steel companies to capture CO2 with its storage. We see this as the essential transition solution with which we contribute significantly to the required emission reduction by 2030. The potential of this is enormous. This technology is already being used in other countries and industries, but not yet in this form and size."
The engineering and design will be executed from McDermott's office in The Hague in the Netherlands.
