Bonatti builds compressor station for Porthos CO2 storage

In 2024, construction commences on the EUR 1.3 billion CO2 transport and storage system in Rotterdam, slated for completion by 2026. Porthos, a collaboration among EBN, Gasunie, and the Port of Rotterdam, aims to handle CO2 emissions from port companies like Air Liquide,  Air Products, ExxonMobil, and Shell.

The system will transport captured CO2 to depleted North Sea gas fields 20 km offshore, storing 2.5 Mton annually for 
15 years, totalling 37 Mton. Bonatti will construct the CO2 compressor station, overseeing engineering, procurement, and construction, as well as pre-commissioning activities. The station, equipped with 3 compressors and automated systems, will deliver CO2 via underwater pipelines to an offshore injection platform.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) plays a crucial role in Dutch climate policy, aiming to reduce Rotterdam’s CO2 emissions by 10%. Bonatti’s involvement reflects its commitment to energy transition, aligning with its efforts in emission reduction projects. 
This project underscores Bonatti’s expertise in compression system engineering and construction, reinforcing its position in the international market.
