Create cost estimates for the world’s largest climate-positive facility

Climeworks is currently building its scaled-up direct air capture and storage plant in Iceland named “Orca”. By capturing 4000 tons of carbon dioxide per year, Orca will be the world’s largest climate-positive facility to date.

In parallel, Climeworks is already working on future generations of plants. Our cost estimating consultants are involved in this impactful project by creating cost estimates for the projects.

Performing CAPEX cost estimates for Climeworks

With their new direct air capture and storage plant Orca already in construction, Climeworks wants to keep scaling up their technology and take CO₂ removal to the next level.

One of the challenges Climeworks experienced was how to rapidly and accurately estimate the CAPEX of large plants early on in the design phase. Therefore, Climeworks searched for an independent organization to create the cost estimation when scaling their new technology.

After investigating potential solutions during a screening and selection process, Climeworks decided to choose for the experienced and certified consultants of Cleopatra Enterprise to provide them with an independent estimate.


‘’One of the main reasons why we chose Cleopatra Enterprise to create our cost estimates is their deep industry knowledge on large and complex projects.’’

– Maxime Tornier, R&D Project Manager at Climeworks
