The Kansai Electric Power (KEPCO) has signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the joint study of liquefied CO2 shipping for developing Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) value chain with. K LINE.
he two companies will jointly study optimal marine transportation schemes and shipping costs of liquefied CO2 emitted from KEPCO’s thermal power plants and aim to develop the CCS value chain in future.
This joint study will investigate the method of liquefied CO2 marine transportation, which are suitable for long-distance and large-scale transportation and develop a more flexible CCS value chain.
KEPCO have set a roadmap to achieve “zero CO2 emissions from business activities as a whole by 2050 in its “Zero Carbon Roadmap.”
KEPCO Group will promote the development of a CCS value chain, including a liquefied CO2 transportation business, and contribute to the zero-carbon society that will benefit its customers and future generations
Recently, K LINE, K LINE KINKAI, and Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) agreed to carry out the research and development of the “Safe Berthing/Unberthing Assist System” to enhance safety and efficiency of vessel maneuvering, berthing/unberthing, and mooring operations in ports.
The research and development aim to advance and improve safety and efficiency in berthing, Unberthing, including mooring by combining expertise from “K” LINE and “K” LINE KINKAI with advanced technologies from KHI.
