Ramboll has been made responsible for safety and risk analyses in the initial phase of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners' (CIP) recently announced Power-to-X facility, which will convert power from offshore wind turbines to green ammonia.
The new facility, which will be located in Esbjerg, Denmark, will be developed by CIP in collaboration with the agriculture and shipping industry. It will convert offshore wind energy to green ammonia, which will be used by the agriculture sector as CO2-free fertilizer and by the shipping industry as CO2-free fuel. The excess heat will be used to provide district heating for around one third of the local households in the city of Esbjerg. In total, the facility is expected to reduce CO2-emissions by around 1.5 million tonnes annually.
“This is a fantastic project that will contribute significantly to Denmark reaching its CO2 reduction target of 70% by 2030. We need projects like these if we are to hit the target,” said Mogens Skov, Global Spearhead Director in Ramboll’s energy division.
