NZT Power and NEP pick contractors for 860MW gas-fired power plant

Net Zero Teesside Power (NZT Power) and the Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP) have chosen nine contractors for a 860MW gas-fired power plant with carbon capture technology in the UK, with a combined value of £4bn.

The power plant will generate enough electricity to serve 1.3 million UK homes.

NZT Power, a collaboration between BP and Equinor, and NEP, a joint venture involving BP, Equinor and TotalEnergies, is tasked with constructing the CO₂  transportation and storage infrastructure.

A consortium comprising Technip Energies, GE Vernova and Balfour Beatty has received a letter of intent from bp, representing NZT Power, to build a combined cycle plant.

The facility will feature GE Vernova’s 9HA.02 gas turbine along with a steam turbine, generator and heat recovery steam generator.

The project is designed to capture two million tonnes of CO₂ annually, which NEP will transport and store beneath the North Sea.

The carbon capture plant will be integrated with the power plant using Technip Energies’ Canopy by T.EN solution, which utilises Shell‘s CANSOLV CO₂ capture technology.

Shell, the technology licensor, will support Technip Energies, GE Vernova and Balfour Beatty.

Saipem has been selected for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of a 28in, 145km offshore pipeline for the NEP project, as well as the EPCI of the water outfall for NZT Power.

UK infrastructure company Costain will manage the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the onshore CO₂ gathering system and associated utilities for the ECC (energy control centre).

TechnipFMC will provide an all-electric subsea system to collect and feed pressurised gas into an aquifer for permanent storage.

Alcatel Submarine Networks has been chosen for the power and communications cable, while Genesis will handle the offshore systems engineering.

Wood has been appointed for integrated project management, and Marubeni-Itochu Tubulars Europe, alongside Liberty Steel Hartlepool, Corinth Pipeworks and Eisenbau Kramer, will supply the onshore and offshore pipeline.

Net Zero Teesside Power managing director Ian Hunter stated: “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 take the final investment decision in September 2024 or before, after which we would look forward to working with our EPC partners through the construction phase.”

The finalisation of these contracts is contingent upon obtaining necessary regulatory approvals and a positive final investment decision, anticipated by September 2024.

The projects will commence commercial operations in 2027.

The contractors will engage with local and regional supply chains to further the project’s development.
