Exciting news for OpenGoSim! Last week the Norwegian Government has granted the LINCSS research consortium with about 100 NOK (~11 M USD), through the Green Platform Initiative. The research project aims to cut costs for new Carbon Capture and Storage facilities by 70%, through optimization of the CO2 value chain, with focus on transport and large-scale, permanent storage of carbon after it is captured.

OpenGoSim will support the project by developing innovative simulation software solutions, working with the LINCSS consortium formed by Aker Solutions, Cognite, Aiz, AGR, Wartsila, The Sustainable Energy Catapult Centre, SINTEF, Wintershall Dea, Vår Energi, Lundin in addition to Equinor and TotalEnergies.

During the three-year project we will have the opportunity to work with some of the companies and research institutes behind the Northern Lights Project, the world’s first full-scale, shared carbon transport and storage project.
