March 25 (Renewables Now) - Aker Solutions ASA is teaming up with engineering and construction firm Doosan Babcock, part of South Korea’s Doosan Group, to deliver projects for low-carbon solutions and renewable energy in the UK.

The two firms have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) and established a team involving people from both sides, according to an announcement on Thursday. They plan to secure contracts for new hydrogen production plants and facilities for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), but will consider opportunities for other projects within the process and energy industries, as well.

In the UK, Aker Solutions is experienced in delivering complete solutions to oil and gas operators and in recent years built a substantial business within decarbonisation and renewables. On the other hand, its new partner is engaged in the construction of onshore power plants in the UK, with some experience gained from carbon capture plant projects.

"We will maintain our already strong position within the oil and gas market, and in parallel grow within low-carbon solutions and zero-emission energy projects. We are already a key contractor for the world's largest full-scale carbon capture and storage project, and we are currently engaged in early-phase work for customers with plans for new hydrogen projects," said Kjetel Digre, CEO of Aker Solutions.
