Petra Nova Carbon Capture Project - Thompsons, Texas
A consortium of TIC – The Industrial Company (TIC) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, engineered, procured and constructed the Petra Nova Carbon Capture Project, the first in the U.S., at NRG’s WA Parish Generating Station. The post-combustion carbon capture system reduces the facilities emissions by 90 percent and removes 5,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide daily. Captured from a 240 MW slipstream of flue gas, the carbon dioxide is compressed and transported to a mature oil field where it is injected to release more oil.
Totaling over 1.7 million manhours, TIC performed detailed design and procurement of the balance-of-plant, and completed all construction without a single lost-time incident.
TIC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kiewit Corporation.
