Denmark’s Orsted plans to install carbon capture technology at the 100 MW straw-fired unit at the Avedore combined heat and power plant in Copenhagen. The final investment decision of the proposed carbon capture project depends on the e-methanol and e-kerosene production components of its larger Green Fuels for Denmark project. The Green Fuels for Denmark project will be rolled out in phases and is planned to have a total 1,300 MW of hydrogen electrolysis capacity when it is fully completed. Orsted is developing the project alongside shipping company AP Moller-Maersk, logistics companies DSV Panalpina and DFDS, airline SAS, and Copenhagen Airports. The second phase of the Green Fuels for Denmark project foresees combining renewable hydrogen production from the project’s first phase with carbon capture at the Avedore plant to produce sustainable methanol and e-kerosene for shipping and aviation, respectively. Orsted is investigating how to advance the project’s first phase to deliver enough sustainable fuels before the planned start of the second phase which is expected to start operations in 2027 (IOD Jan.20'21). Orsted and local utility Hofor previously agreed that Orsted will take delivery of the power produced by Hofor’s planned 250 MW Aflandshage offshore wind farm as a part of the wider project.
