Seven UK CCS Applications Submitted for EU NER300 Funding

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Of the 12 applications submitted to the EIB ahead of the 9 May deadline, seven are for CCS projects and five for renewable energy projects. Two CCS applications were withdrawn voluntarily by the Project Sponsors.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) will now spend nine months performing ‘due diligence’ on the applications submitted to it, checking their financial and technical deliverability. After this the European Commission will verify the eligibility criteria assessment and re-confirm with Member States the public funding contribution for Recommended Projects, before making its Award Decisions.
The seven CCS applications are:
• Alstom Limited Consortium: oxyfuel new supercritical coal-fired power station on Drax site in North Yorkshire;
• C.GEN: new integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power station (pre-combustion with CCS on the coal-feed) in Killingholme, Yorkshire;
• Peel Energy CCS Ltd: post-combustion amine capture on new supercritical coal-fired power station in Ayrshire, Scotland;
• Don Valley Power Project (formerly known as the Hatfield Project): new IGCC power station in Stainforth, Yorkshire;
• A consortium led by Progressive Energy Ltd: pre-combustion coal gasification project in Teesside, North East England;
• Scottish Power Generation Limited: post-combustion amine capture retrofitted to an existing subcritical coal-fired power station at Longannet, Scotland; and
• SSE Generation Limited: post-combustion capture retrofitted to an existing CCGT power station at Peterhead, Scotland.
The Government is committed to continuing public sector investment in four CCS projects and aims to launch a selection process to identify projects for UK funding later this year.
The five renewable applications are:
• POWER (Pentland Orkney Wave Energy Resource) which will deploy Aquamarine Oyster and Pelamis wave energy converters off the coast of the Orkneys;
• Kyle Rhea Tidal Turbine Array which will deploy Marine Current Turbines “SeaGen” devices in Kyle Rhea, Islay;
• MeyGen Tidal Stream Project which will deploy Atlantis Resources and Rolls Royce/Tidal Generation tidal turbines in the Pentland Firth Inner Sound;
• Scottish Power Renewables Sound of Islay Demonstration Tidal Array which will deploy Hammerfest Strom tidal turbines in the Sound of Islay; and
• Blyth Britannia which will deploy Clipper Wind Power 10 MW Offshore Wind Turbines off Blyth in Northumberland. (Carbon Capture Journal)
