New Energy appointments to support development of new segment
At the beginning of September, Welltec began testing of components to be used in the ambitious Project Greensand, one of the largest Carbon Capture and Storage projects across Europe.
To support these new activities and our own plans within New Energy services, we are extremely happy to announce two key additions to help Welltec develop this new field of possibilities. We welcome Linda Nolting Kristensen as New Energy Technology Innovation Manager, and Lia Khasanova as New Energy Commercial Director – both bring key industry experience from TotalEnergies and Maersk Drilling, respectively.
“The aim for this new organization is to ensure that Welltec is a key player within the energy transition and that we remain at the forefront of innovative technology solutions. I see this as a great opportunity to use my skills from the energy sector and apply them to this exciting new field and future we are moving towards,” says Linda Nolting Kristensen, New Energy Technology Innovation Manager.
“Based on what I’ve learned about Welltec’s skillset, assets, and culture, we have a lot to offer to the emerging markets within the Green Energy sector. Now, we have an interesting task ahead of us to grow our business via constant value creation for our clients and partners in this area,” say Lia Khasanova.
CCS testing underway
Project Greensand is the most mature project of its kind in Denmark, with the potential of storing up to 1.5 million tons of CO2 per year by the end of 2025, and up to 8 million tons of CO2 per year by 2030. The consortium behind Project Greensand consists of 23 different Danish and international partners who all work to deliver a significant contribution to the green transition in Denmark.
The launch of Welltec’s newly developed Test Flow Loop – a test installation of 18 x 5 meters – provides the setting for essential corrosion testing, where the performance of five different materials will be compared in a controlled environment.
