Turning our strengths into renewable energy opportunities
In a world that is switching to renewable energy, we have embarked on a journey utilizing our experience in water treatment and energy solutions to support the green energy vision.
Techouse has over 40 years of experience in developing and delivering water treatment systems, energy recovery solutions, energy-efficiency systems and engineering services to the international oil and gas industry. We see a strong case for deploying our solutions and expertise to address climate change.
Tackling climate change have never been more critical. With Techouse’s experience and solutions, we see an opportunity to contribute to this pressing issue, while generating growth for our company. We have therefore implemented a new strategy for sustainable development focused on three main objectives:
• Map the areas in which we can make a difference
• Contribute to the priorities of the United Nations 2030 Agenda (SDGs)
• Establish a business approach guided by sustainability objectives
The offshore wind market, carbon capture projects and hydrogen development are the most relevant markets for our technologies. Renewable energy projects offshore are an obvious choice as the requirements are very similar to the offshore oil and gas market in which we are already well-positioned. The installations are unmanned and require high availability and low maintenance, which our technologies fulfil, while making sure quality and safety are at the forefront.
Wind projects in the pipeline
We have been selected to support Aker Solutions in a wind project to provide the HVDC (high-voltage, direct current) transmission system for an offshore wind farm project in the northeast United States. Techouse will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, and construction of two water treatment packages – electrochlorination and UV – that will provide protection for the equipment on the seawater lines on the platform. Delivery is planned for 2022.
Cutting CO2 emissions in the Nordics
Another project secured is a waste-to-energy plant in the Nordics. Techouse will be responsible for modifying an existing CO2 capture plant, including engineering, procurement, construction, recommissioning, and commissioning activities to be carried out to perform the modification and the plant’s start-up. The existing plant will be modified to operate substantially reducing CO2 emissions.
During a period of pandemic and a challenging market dynamic, the Techouse people have diligently continued the path of innovation and sustainability, to demonstrate that our solutions can be applied in renewable energy production.
“These orders demonstrate how quickly we are progressing with our sustainability strategy and that we are competitive in a global market. We expect an increase in market demand for water treatment and energy solutions, and view Techouse as a relevant player in these projects. We are well-positioned to take full advantage of these opportunities and we are looking forward to supporting existing and new clients in the energy transition,” Managing Director of Techouse, Svein Helge Pettersen said.
“It is our pleasure and pride that our clients have recognized the same values and have chosen Techouse to be their partner on these critical projects”.
