Technip Energies (Paris) and its partner GE Gas Power have been selected by RWE Generation UK plc to perform a pre-FEED (Front-End Engineering and Design) study for a new, decarbonized natural gas-fired Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) plant with a fully integrated carbon capture (CCS) facility.
The carbon capture CCGT will maintain security of supply whilst supporting the energy industry’s transition to net zero. It is sited near Stallingborough, Lincolnshire and is a capture partner of Viking CCS.
The pre-FEED study will address the challenges, benefits, economics, and optimal technical solutions when integrating a carbon capture facility with cutting-edge power station design.
GE Gas Power will provide proven expertise in natural gas combined cycle plant engineering, operability, and plant integration while Technip Energies will focus on the carbon capture facility using Shell’s Cansolv® carbon capture technology.
Christophe Malaurie, SVP Decarbonization Solutions of Technip Energies, stated: “We are pleased to be entrusted by RWE for this project – a large green field development for a power plant with carbon capture in the East Coast Cluster of the UK. By leveraging our partnership with GE Gas Power and our expertise in carbon capture projects through Shell Cansolv technology, we are fully committed to supporting our client in making this project an industrial success.”
Supported by its engineering and technical project partners, RWE is conducting feasibility assessments of the Stallingborough project with a view to participating in the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) Cluster Sequencing for CCUS deployment to secure a Dispatchable Power Agreement (DPA).
