Energy solutions company Worley has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for a post-combustion carbon capture facility as part of the Humber Zero project, a £1.2bn effort to decarbonise the Immingham industrial area by 2030.
Granted by VPI Immingham (VPI), the contract will see Worley retrofitting two gas turbines and two auxiliary gas boilers with post-combustion carbon capture technology at VPI’s 1240 MW (megawatt) combined heat and power plant.
The project intends to capture up to 8m tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the area before exporting it via pipeline to be stored safely in geological formations underneath the North Sea.
Worley will use the FEED phase to define the scope of the project, identify equipment and infrastructure needs and set out a detailed timeline for work to take place, undertaken by its UK team.
