April 13, 2022 – Sargent & Lundy will play a major role in one of the first American projects to capture existing CO2 emissions of a power plant and sequester them in geological formations.
Cleco Power, a regulated electric public utility company serving Louisiana and Mississippi, recently announced it will be developing Diamond Vault, a new, state-of-the-art carbon capture facility in central Louisiana. The company selected Sargent & Lundy as its owner’s engineer, with the goal to re-engineer its existing plant to reduce at least 95% of its carbon dioxide emissions through carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology. The project is expected to create thousands of new jobs and greatly impact the Louisiana economy.
Sargent & Lundy is an industry leader in CO2 capture technologies, serving public and private clients with extensive experience and capabilities for executing pilot- to commercial-scale projects.
