DECC: Reports from Kingsnorth E.ON UK Carbon Capture & Storage Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) project

Dataset description

During 2010-11, as part of the Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) Demonstration Competition process, E.ON undertook a preliminary Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study for the development of a commercial scale CCS demonstration plant at Kingsnorth in Kent, South East England. The study has yielded invaluable knowledge on areas including project design, technical design, health and safety, environment, consents and project management. The E.ON UK FEED study material is available for download.

Lineage statement A Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) study undertaken by E.ON following the award of a FEED contract with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) in March 2010. This FEED was delivered by a dedicated team of around 110 expexperts comprised many different disciplines from Mechanical, Civil and Electrical engineers to Geologists and Ecologists and also included Lawyers, Accountants, Surveyors and many other professionals. The FEED brought together and integrated expertise from several distinct industries: process plant, power plant and offshore oil and gas, from a total of 17 different organisations. Finally, the FEED team included expertise from as far afield as Japan, Germany and Aberdeen as well as significant expertise from E.ON New Build & Technology based in Nottingham and Gelsenkirchen and Hannover in Germany. Despite these challenges, this FEED was delivered in a substantive period of only 9 months and for significantly less than budget. The Key Knowledge Reference Book is publically available to all CCS project developers and other interested parties to ensure the lessons learned from this FEED are disseminated as widely as possible to advance the roll-out of Carbon Capture and Storage. During 2010-11, as part of the Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) Demonstration Competition process, E.ON undertook a preliminary Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study for the development of a commercial scale CCS demonstration plant on the planned supercritical coal fired power station at Kingsnorth in Kent, South East England. The Kingsnorth CCS Project consists of two 800MW power generating units at Kingsnorth power station, a 300MW (net) post combustion carbon capture plant integrated into the power plant with associated dehydration and compression facilities, a 36? pipeline for transportation of CO2 to the Hewett gas field in the southern North Sea and a new platform at this field with associated injection facilities and wells.
