A Technip-led consortium with GE Vernova and Balfour Beatty, as well as Costain, have joined the ranks of several other companies, who will work on the Teesside carbon capture project in the UK.

The Teesside carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) project is the world’s first gas-fired power station equipped with carbon capture technology.

Once complete, the Teesside CCUS project, currently valued at roughly £4 billion (~$5 billion) will capture and store a whopping 10 million metric tons of carbon dioxide every year. 

The captured emissions are to be injected beneath the North Sea for permanent storage. 

The Technip Energies and GE Vernova consortium, supported by leading infrastructure group Balfour Beatty, will play an important role constructing a highly efficient combined cycle plant. It will be powered by an advanced GE Vernova 9HA.02 gas turbine, a steam turbine, a generator and a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG), which will integrate with a state-of-the-art carbon capture plant using Technip Energies’ Canopy by T.ENTM solution powered by the Shell CANSOLV® CO2 capture technology.

Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, commented on the news by saying, “Our selection for the Net Zero Teesside Power project is a testament to Technip Energies growing leadership position as an integrated state-of-the-art CCUS solutions provider. By capturing up to 2 million tonnes of CO2 at a large power plant, we collectively rise to the challenge of scale by providing sustainable and available energy at a large scale. With our partners GE Vernova and Balfour Beatty, we are honoured to contribute to this flagship project that supports bp and the UK in their goal of developing one of the first decarbonised industrial clusters in the world.”      

Costain is also among the nine leading specialist contractors to be working on the project and will share eight contract packages that are subject to a final investment decision expected before Q4.

Balfour Beatty will lead construction of the combined-cycle power plant equipped with carbon capture technology, by using modular construction techniques.

Costain, on the other hand, will handle the design, material acquisition, and construction of the onshore system that collects carbon dioxide from the East Coast Cluster’s industrial facilities.

These projects offer significant opportunities for the nation’s supply chain, and further partnerships are set to be formed in the coming months.

Ian Hunter, Managing Director, Net Zero Teesside Power, said: “The selection of contractors is a major step forward for Net Zero Teesside Power.”

“We have selected world-class partners who have the experience and capability needed to deliver. We aim to make a final investment decision in September 2024 or before, after which we’d look forward to working with our EPC partners through the construction phase”.
