Landmark CCS Project In Humber Becomes UK’s First To Gain Planning Consent

The title of this post, is the same as that of this news item on the SSE web site.

This is the first paragraph.

SSE Thermal and Equinor’s Keadby 3 Carbon Capture Power Station in the Humber has become the first power CCS project in the UK to receive planning permission.

Note.

  1. This will be one of four power stations at Keadby with Keadby 1, Keadby 2 and Keadby Hydrogen Power Station.
  2. Keadby 3 will have a capacity of 910 MW.
  3. It will capture up to 1,500,000 tonnes of carbon per year.
  4. It could be operational as early as 2027.

The news item, also says this about SSE’s other power stations and hydrogen storage.

SSE Thermal and Equinor are also collaborating on Peterhead Carbon Capture Power Station in the north-east of Scotland. In addition, they are developing Keadby Hydrogen Power Station, which could be the world’s first large-scale 100% hydrogen-fuelled power stations, and Aldbrough Hydrogen Storage, which could provide vital storage to balance intermittent supply and demand.

This all fits nicely with the proposed strategy I wrote about in Increased CCS Can Decarbonise GB Electricity Faster On Route To Net Zero.

I think we can expect more new gas-fired power stations with carbon capture to be built by SSE.
