SNC-Lavalin to Develop Business Case for Nat Gas Plant With CCS

By ExchangeMonitor

The United Kingdom’s Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) said Wednesday it has appointed engineering group SNC-Lavalin to develop a business care for a natural gas power plant with carbon capture and storage. “Stakeholders in CCS will need compelling evidence of the business case for a new power with CCS project which is why we are taking this project forward – to add to this evidence base,” Andrew Green, ETI’s program manager, said in a press release.

ETI will invest £650,000 in the project, which teams SNC-Lavalin with global infrastructure services firm AECOM and the University of Sheffield’s Energy 2050 Institute. Together, the groups will “develop an outline scheme and a ‘template’ power plant design (Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) with post combustion capture), identify potential sites in key UK industrial hubs and build a credible cost base for such a scheme, benchmarked as far as possible against actual project data and as-built plant,” the release says.
