Apollo is delighted to announce that it has joined NECCUS as part of its growing activities within the Energy Transition. Focussed on enabling green technologies and playing a key role in industry achieving Net Zero, Apollo is looking forward to bringing its expertise and contributing to the strengthening of the alliance and supporting the reduction of carbon emissions from industrial sources in Scotland and beyond.
Apollo is currently working with a number of oil and gas operators reducing their greenhouse gas emissions through either removal of redundant and carbon intensive equipment, refinement of processes and making step change decisions such as assessing suitability for electrification.
This work continues in parallel with Apollo’s growing footprint in renewable energy which spans offshore wind developers competing in the ongoing ScotWind leasing round, Celtic Sea and the recently awarded Round 4 sites, as well as developing critical technology at the forefront of the wave and tidal sectors.
Apollo is no stranger to the challenges and complexities surrounding Carbon Capture, and has experience in supporting the delivery of pilot CCUS schemes in the past, through providing design and engineering support and verification on behalf of both duty holder and independent verification bodies.
More recently Apollo has undertaken a number of studies investigating the feasibility of repurposing existing infrastructure for CO2 and hydrogen transportation and management in the North Sea.
Energy Transition Manger, Lucy Green said “Apollo’s home on Waterloo Quay at Aberdeen Harbour is at the heart of the Energy Transition. I am personally very excited for the opportunity to play our part in supporting NECCUS. Recognising that there is no silver bullet to meeting the climate change objectives chimes really well with the NECCUS mission. I am confident that our pedigree in renewable energy and oil and gas production combined with our heritage in the North East of Scotland will benefit NECCUS massively.”
