Status to date

In June 2024, CO2next has entered the so-called Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase and has awarded its FEED contract to the engineering and technology group Sener.

During the FEED phase the design, the realisation schedule and the cost of the proposed CO2next terminal will be further defined, the relevant permits can be received and customers will be contracted in preparation for the Final Investment Decision (FID) currently planned for 2025. 

Following the FID planned for 2025, subject to permits being granted by relevant authorities, the CO2next terminal is currently foreseen to commence commercial operations in 2028.

Aligned approach with the Aramis CCS project

It is envisaged that the CCS Aramis initiative will become a launching customer of the CO2next terminal. CO2next and the Aramis CCS project are jointly exploring the feasibility of the development of a CO2 value chain.

Permitting

CO2next and the CCS Aramis initiative have a joint participation and permitting approach using the Rijks Coördinatie Regeling (RCR). The first permit application was submitted 9 February 2024, two more permit applications will follow. The ministry EZK will communicate through their official channels i.e. RVO and https://www.rvo.nl/onderwerpen/bureau-energieprojecten/lopende-projecten/aramis.
