木, the global consulting and engineering company, has been appointed as the integration project management contractor (IPMC) for 亨伯河零, one of the leading industrial decarbonisation projects in the UK.
As the most carbon-intensive industrial cluster in the UK, the Humber emits 12.每年400万吨. 亨伯河零, a partnership between the Phillips 66 Humber Refinery and Vitol’s VPI Immingham power plant, is a hybrid carbon capture and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen project.
It could decarbonise the Immingham industrial complex by capturing up to 8m/tCO2 per annum for transportation and storage in nearby offshore storage locations. The project has benefitted from UK Re搜索 and Innovation (UKRI) support.
The decarbonisation roadmap developed for 亨伯河零 envisages that Immingham will become a carbon capture and hydrogen hub, providing cost effective decarbonised energy supply and storage opportunities to both industry and National Grid.
As part of the scope of work, a multidisciplinary team from across 木 will facilitate the development and integration of the designs across the FEED packages including interface management, 安全性研究, licensor selection and scoping of future services. 除了, 木 will support VPI Immingham and Phillips 66 through the subsequent FEED delivery and EPC contractor tendering process. This award builds on the feasibility and pre-FEED studies carried out by 木 to support the development of the 亨伯河零 project.
Giuseppe Zuccaro, President of Process & 化学物质在木, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside VPI Immingham and Phillips 66 on the 亨伯河零 project.
“木 is focused on driving the global energy transition and a milestone project of this kind could create a model for industrial decarbonisation around the world, as well as helping the UK to meet its goal of reaching net-zero by 2050.”
乔纳森·布里格斯, 亨伯河零 project director, said: “We are pleased to appoint 木 on this important contract.
“It is the next major step in this exciting project, which benefits from UKRI support, and which is set to become the UK’s gateway carbon capture project.”
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is one of the components of the 10-point plan for the Government’s Green Industrial Revolution, announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in November 2020, and is critical to the UK achieving its legislated goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The Government has set a target to remove 10-million tonnes of the UK’s annual CO2 emissions by 2030, a figure equivalent to all industrial emissions from the Humber region.
