The FEED contract also includes the planned development of a carbon dioxide transportation and storage solution – the Yorkshire Humber CCS Trunkline – to be undertaken by National Grid Carbon Limited.
The award of the contract marks the next step in the UK CCS Commercialisation Programme. The FEED study is a two year programme of detailed engineering, planning and financial work to finalise and de-risk all aspects of the proposal ahead of taking the final investment decision, and proceeding to financial close and the commencement of construction.
During FEED, Capture Power, together with National Grid Carbon, will continue to work with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) with a view to concluding a Project Contract for the construction and operation of the full chain CCS project.
The White Rose proposal is to build a new 426MW (gross) clean coal power plant with full carbon capture and storage, capturing approximately 2 million tonnes of CO2 per year. The CO2 will be transported through National Grid’s proposed Yorkshire Humber CCS Trunkline for permanent undersea storage in the North Sea.
