The US engineering group is striving to bring its emissions to net zero by 2050.

By Joseph Murphy - Gas Pathways

US engineering group McDermott has launched a web-based tool that helps energy firms better assess the carbon footprint of planned facilities before construction begins, it said on January 27.

The tool, known as ArborXD, can be applied throughout an energy project's life cycle, including at the concept, front-end engineering design and engineering, procurement, construction and installation phases. It provides McDermott's customers with access to lifecycle footprint estimates, cost tradeoff analyses, emission reduction pathways and environmental impact assessments.

"ArborXD™ is another demonstration of the powerful combination of McDermott's integrated engineering expertise, innovation and commitment to advance and enable our customers' sustainability goals," McDermott CEO Samik Mukherjee said. "It is an energy industry differentiator that will help quantifiably reduce the operating footprint of the facilities we design and build."

McDermott is striving to bring its emissions to net zero by 2050. In November last year it notably teamed up with Shell to look at ways of decarbonising construction. Later that month it said that its studies had revealed that significant reductions could be made in greenhouse gas emissions in the construction of LNG facilities.
