Carbon capture project win for two Aberdeen engineering firms

Aug 21 2015

Two Aberdeen engineering consultancies are celebrating a significant project win which will see over two million tonnes of carbon dioxide captured and stored in the North Sea.

Apollo and Dundas Consultants will be working together to deliver engineering services to National Grid as part of the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage Project. The CO2 will be captured and transported from the Drax coal fired power station near Selby, North Yorkshire, and stored in an underground reservoir below the North Sea.

Jonathan White, business development director at Apollo, said:

“This is very exciting news for Apollo and Dundas. The joint capability of the two companies allows us to effectively deliver the project that would not have been possible without close collaboration from the outset.

“The importance of creating effective solutions for maximising the economic reserves of the North Sea has been highlighted recently in the Wood Review, and productive collaboration is an increasingly sought after ability in the current economic climate.”

Richard Woodhouse, director at Dundas, said: “We are delighted to be servicing this world class project with the combined expertise of both Dundas and Apollo. The expertise of our engineers for oil and gas is directly transferrable to offshore CCS projects and we look forward to adding value to the client’s project team.

“The oil and gas supply chain is evolving in the North Sea to react to market drivers. Effective co-operation and collaboration between SME companies such as Dundas and Apollo enables clients to add value to their project portfolio, and provides a much needed service for tackling the challenges the industry is currently facing.”
