Horisont Energi announced that it has completed the feasibility phase of the Barents Blue project, laying the foundation for Europe’s first large-scale carbon-neutral ammonia plant, which will include offshore carbon storage.

The plant will deliver an ultra-low carbon footprint, with between 99.3% and 99.9% overall CO2 capture.

“Our clear ambition is to make blue ammonia, which is produced from natural gas with carbon capture, just as environmentally friendly as plants based exclusively renewable electricity and electrolysis, called green ammonia. In the future, it is also our intention to develop green ammonia facilities, but regardless of the technology, we aim to set the industry standard for large-scale clean ammonia production.” said Bjørgulf Haukelidsæter Eidesen, CEO of Horisont Energi.

Horisont Energi will now award contracts for concept studies to various suppliers. This process will result in a concept decision, intended to be completed around the end of the year. Following this decision, detailed studies (front end engineering design – FEED) will lead to a final investment decision towards the end of 2022.
