Worley has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract by VPI Immingham LLP for a post-combustion carbon capture facility – part of the Humber Zero project located in the UK.
Humber Zero aims to remove up to 8 million tpy of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the Immingham industrial area by 2030 using carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.
This contract includes a post-combustion carbon capture retrofit to two gas turbines and two auxiliary gas boilers at VPI’s 1240 MW combined heat and power plant. The carbon captured from the plant will be compressed and exported by pipeline to secure storage deep under the bed of the North Sea.
The project has the potential to abate approximately 3 million tpy of CO2 emissions.
During the FEED phase, Worley will define the project scope, identify equipment and infrastructure needs and set out a more detailed timeline for work. The services will be carried out by its team in the UK.
The Humber region currently represents more than 40% of the UK’s industrial emissions. The project is a partner in the Humber Industrial Cluster Plan, which sets out the region’s decarbonisation journey and was awarded £1.7 million at the start of 2022.
