The project is anticipated to create jobs, strengthen the UK’s energy security, and support the nation’s transition to cleaner energy sources, aligning with Liberty Steel’s wider decarbonization strategy.

NEP’s focus is building the carbon dioxide (CO2) transportation and storage infrastructure needed to serve East Coast Cluster (ECC) carbon capture projects.

Meanwhile, NZT Power is aiming to be the world’s first commercial-scale gas-fired power station equipped with carbon capture technology.

LPH’s expertise is expected to contribute to the development of new energy infrastructure projects in the UK and internationally.
