GE - Metal Production
GE Norway AS – ECS . The environmental control solutions (ECS) within Alstom became a part of GE in November 2015, when GE took over most of the Alstom power business. Within ECS, the Norwegian branch based in Oslo has focused on the development and sale of gas treatment and alumina handling for the global aluminium industry over the last fifty years. From the Oslo office, GE also supplies environmental control solutions and services for any other major industry and power segment including the Mongstad CCS chilled amonia pilot plant.
Our long lasting relationship with the Norwegian pioneering aluminium industry, universities and intitutes has been a vital part of our ability to survive as a market leader in our segment. Our objective for the participation in the SFI Metal Production is to maintain our “close to the customer“ approach to develop our technology further, according to the needs in the industry related to the business area of gas treatment and alumina handling.
The main knowledge and expertise brought to the consortium includes experience within dry scrubbing of HF with alumina, removal of other pollutants (SO2, particulates , PAH etc), and waste heat recovery including design of heat exchangers and use of low grade heat .
So far the contributions in the SFI are related to the PAH measurement campaigns at Alcoa Mosjøen as well as participation in various technical committees etc.
