Technology Centre Mongstad, located at the Mongstad refinery outside Bergen, is the world’s largest facility for testing and improving CO2 capture.
All three control rooms have an Extended Operator Workplace EOW-x3 console from ABB providing a workstation for the operators. Besides the actual control system, ABB has designed a custom made graphical user interface for the control room screens. The control rooms are sound proofed and contain windows, which cannot be used to see the monitors in the Aker and Alstom rooms from the outside.
"The companies are competing to develop the most effective technology for full-scale CO2
capture and as such need to protect their intellectual property, especially since they are developing these technologies side by side at this unique installation," says communications manager Vegar Stokset.
