Aramco commits to the climate

Aramco’s research center is located at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Kaust. Thus, it will deploy artificial intelligence and machine learning tools. This is to develop innovative ways to advance low-carbon solutions, and enable a circular carbon economy.

In fact, today’s energy companies face the challenge of sustainability and reliability. They have obligations to their customers, as well as targets to meet in terms of carbon emissions.

A research center to develop new technologies

In particular, Aramco is aiming for net zero operational emissions by 2050. Thus, the research that will be conducted within this new research center will be of crucial help in achieving these goals.

Aramco’s chief technology officer, states:

“The Aramco Research Center at KAUST provides a unique opportunity to strengthen our collaboration with KAUST and accelerate the development of advanced technologies that will contribute to a low-carbon future.”

The opening of the center also represents an important step in Aramco’s growth. It provides collaborative opportunities to leverage Kaust’s capabilities in areas such as supercomputing and data analysis.

Kaust’s researchers, engineers and scientists aim to develop new technologies in carbon capture, hydrogen, metal products, electronic fuels, liquid chemicals and advanced transportation technologies.

HySynergy: Everfuel and Crossbridge launch phase 2

Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy announced that they have signed a long-term agreement. It determines the terms of the hydrogen supply for one stage of the HySynergy project, currently under development. This is a major milestone for the smelter, which is expected to reach a capacity of 300 MW. Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy launch the second phase of HySynergy Everfuel and Crossbridge Energy have approved commercial terms for the first stage of the HySynergy smelter development. Three stages make up phase two of the development, corresponding to three sections of 100 MW capacity. Section A is expected to produce up to 40 tons of renewable hydrogen per day. The Crossbridge Energy refinery will use this hydrogen to produce more sustainable fuel. It is also intended for the mobility and industrial sectors as a zero-emission fuel. Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel, welcomes the agreement with Crossbridge Energy: "The long-term agreement on commercial terms with Crossbridge Energy is an important element for the HySynergy Phase II development project. We share a strong partnership and look forward to continuing our collaboration on the construction of a large-scale PtX facility that will be a game changer for the energy transition in Denmark.

Tata Power Solar inaugurates a Floating Solar project

Tata Power Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Power, has just accomplished a remarkable feat in India. In fact, it has just commissioned the largest floating solar power project in the country. Despite the technical difficulties, the company was able to deliver the project on time, proving its commitment to the energy transition. Tata Power Solar achieves a technical feat Tata Power Solar inaugurates India's largest floating solar power project. The latter is located on a body of water of about 141 hectares in the backwaters of Kayamkulam, in Kerala. In addition, this project has an installed capacity of 101.6MWp. This project is the first of the floating solar photovoltaic power plants (FSPV) with a power purchase agreement. In addition, it has obtained a commercial operation date (CoD) certification designating it as complete and operational. Tata Power Solar has built a platform on the water on which the entire solar power plant floats. 134 cast pile foundations, drilled to a depth of 20 meters, anchor the entire project to the waterbed. This supports the central monitoring and control stations and the 33/220 kilovolt distribution substation. The entire array includes floats and solar panel modules. Tata Power Solar had to...
