“The entire team at Ocean GeoLoop and our partners are excited that we have passed the 3,000-hour milestone of safe operations of our industrial carbon capture pilot at Norske Skog Skogn. Having an autonomous carbon capture plant with no harmful chemicals or need for residual heat are features that are highly appreciated by our current and future industrial partners. Following this successful milestone, we are excited to use these results in a commercial setting,“ says Odd-Geir Lademo, Chief Executive Officer of Ocean GeoLoop.

Ocean GeoLoop reported revenues in the first half of 2023 of NOK 83.2 million, up from NOK 45.7 million in the same period last year. The company continued the planned investments in technology development and in the carbon capture pilot plant, resulting in a negative operating profit of NOK 17.2 million, an improvement from negative NOK 26.0 million in the same period last year. The company had a cash position of NOK 133.8 million at the end of the period.

In the first half of 2023, the main focus was the long-term testing of the industrial carbon capture plant, which provided further proof that the carbon capture technology is highly robust at industrial scale and conditions. The pilot has shown solid performance related to industrial robustness, including when run autonomously over longer periods.

Ocean GeoLoop also continued to implement the technology roadmap by the planning, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of a down-scaled test-rig for Ocean GeoLoop´s carbon capture technology at SINTEF´s CO2 lab in Trondheim. With the complementary process simulator, the company holds an effective infrastructure for optimizing carbon capture solutions for customers. This comprehensive test- infrastructure, the organizational set-up with internal resources and external R&D partners and suppliers is a solid platform to launch the GeoLoop Carbon Capture solution commercially.

“We have complemented our technological toolbox for experimental testing and extrapolation to industrial customer and customer segments, and started the process to hire new and highly competent colleagues,“ Lademo continues, and concludes:

“Our partners Yara, Franzefoss Minerals, Norske Skog and Norðurál have ambitious plans and represent global industry segments with a large market potential. With our complete toolbox for testing, piloting and customization, our highly motivated and competent staff, collaborative partners and a broad network on board, we are now ready to offer customized solutions for carbon capture in the market.”
