Ørsted has broken ground on Europe’s largest e-methanol project, FlagshipONE.
Originally developed by the Swedish e-fuels company Liquid Wind, FlagshipONE will be located next to Övik Energi’s biomass-fired combined-heat-and-power plant Hörneborgsverket in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden.
E-methanol is produced by combining green hydrogen and captured carbon dioxide — a process has the potential to mitigate carbon dioxide emission to the atmosphere. The e-methanol from FlagshipONE will be produced using renewable electricity and biogenic carbon dioxide, captured from Hörneborgsverket. FlagshipONE also will use steam, process water and cooling water from Hörneborgsverket. Excess heat from the e-methanol production process will be delivered back to Övik Energi and integrated into the district heating supply.
Siemens Energy, Carbon Clean and Topsoe will deliver the electrolyzers and control system, the carbon capture equipment and the methanol synthesis equipmen
