As a representative of its partners, bp has awarded contracts to two consortiums of engineering, carbon capture licensors, power providers, and EPC contractors, bp said in a statement.
These contracts, which were awarded through a dual Front End Engineering Design (FEED) competition, will involve designing and submitting development plans for Net Zero Teesside Power’s (NZT Power) proposed power station and carbon capture plant, and the Northern Endurance Partnership’s (NEP) planned Teesside high-pressure carbon dioxide (CO2) compression and export facilities. bp is the operator of both NZT Power and NEP.
The statement mentioned that the two consortiums are the Technip Energies and General Electric consortium and the Aker Solutions Doosan Babcock and Siemens Energy consortium.
On this occasion, Louise Kingham, bp’s UK head of country and senior vice president of Europe, said, “Moving to Front End Engineering Design is a major step forward for Net Zero Teesside Power and the development of the Northern Endurance Partnership. This first-of-a-kind project has the potential to deliver enough low carbon, flexible electricity to power around 1.3 million homes, and can help secure Teesside’s position at the green heart of the country’s energy transition.”
