Don Valley

Samsung C&T ECUK has awarded a contract to a subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group to update front-end engineering design (FEED) work for the Don Valley Power Project in Yorkshire, the UK.

The value of the contract has not been disclosed.

The FEED work for the project was previously developed by a third party for 2Co Energy Limited.

Foster Wheeler’s scope of work, to be completed in 2013, will involve process engineering, process integration and FEED update work for inside the battery limits.

The company will manage the process licensors’ technical scope for the gasification and acid gas removal units.

Samsung C&T will serve as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project, which is expected to start operation in 2016.

The 900MW Don Valley Power Project will feature an integrated coal gasification combined cycle power plant and will enable CO2 transportation and storage combined with enhanced oil recovery.

The plant is designed to capture 90% of carbon contained inside the fossil fuel. The CO2 will then be compressed and transported via an underground pipeline being developed by National Grid.

Under a separate contract, Foster Wheeler has already been appointed by 2Co Energy as a project management consultant for the project.
