Busy Tuesday at Norcem Brevik: Top management from Heidelberg arrived first, later the Minister for Climate and Environment  got an update on the Brevik CCS project.

Busy day for plant manager Morken & Co
Norcem's German owners, HeidelbergCement, brought the entire management group to Brevik. This is part of a larger tour where they visit subsidiaries in both Norway and Sweden.

Plant manager Per Ole Morken welcomed the delegation and, together with the project management for the carbon capture project Brevik CCS, gave a thorough review of the project and the plant.

Since BrevikCCS was launched at the end of 2020, HeidelbergCement has strengthened its environmental ambitions, and they currently have several carbon capture projects under development in several locations in Europe and North America. However, Brevik CCS is the project that is closest to completion, and the project is therefore of great interest to the group.

After the presentations of the project and the plant, a tour of the factory was on the to do-list.. Here they were able to see the ongoing construction of the carbon capture facility. There was also a small trip up to the 9th floor to see the Brevik plant's lovely archipelago.

Positive minister
HeidelbergCement's ambitious thoughts were also conveyed in the afternoon when the plant manager welcomed the Minister for Climate and Environment Espen Barth Eide, who came to get an update on the project. The minister was on a tour of the area, and is well aware of the carbon capture project as this is an important part of the government's climate action.

Following the visit, an engaged Minister for Climate and Environment expressed that the project looks incredibly exciting, and that they are eagerly following the continuation.
