The Project

Decarbonising Industry. Creating Jobs. Reaching Net Zero.

One of the first projects of its kind in the world, Whitetail Clean Energy will represent millions of pounds invested into Teesside, through building a NET Power carbon capture plant at Sembcorp Energy UK’s existing Wilton International site.

It will generate approximately 300 MW of clean power, available whenever it’s needed, while capturing its CO2 for sequestration, making it a Net Zero emissions plant.

This eliminates all emissions, including air pollution and CO2, and inherently produces pipeline-quality CO2  that can be sequestered, all while operating at competitive cost and efficiency to traditional gas power plants.

Carbon capture projects such as Whitetail Clean Energy are essential to the UK’s transition to a Net Zero future.

NET Power

300 MW of power with net zero emissions is made possible by the revolutionary Allam-Fetvedt Cycle, initially funded by the UK government and advanced by NET Power.

Decarbonisation and Levelling Up

Whitetail Clean Energy accelerates the UK’s ten-point plan for decarbonisation and achieving Net Zero emissions

Investment and Jobs

Whitetail Clean Energy is expected to bring a significant investment into Teesside, potentially creating over 2,000 direct, indirect, and induced jobs during peak construction and 200 indirect and direct highly skilled jobs during operation.

Power Without Pollution

The technology will capture over 800,000 tons of CO2 per year for storage beneath the North Sea, while emitting no air pollutants.

This technology was proven by NET Power and represents a game-changing advance in the search for solutions to climate change, one that makes today’s fossil fuel power plant’s economically and environmentally obsolete.

The Whitetail Clean Energy Facility Will Be Located Within Sembcorp Energy UK’s Wilton International Site on Teesside, Utilising Significant Existing Infrastructure To Become the UK’s First Net Zero Emissions Power Plant

Capturing Carbon

Developed by Rodney Allam MBE and Jeremy Fetvedt, NET Power’s semi-closed loop technology leverages oxy-combustion to produce emissions-free power.

The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle burns natural gas with pure oxygen. The resulting CO2 is recycled through the combustor, turbine, heat exchanger, and compressor, creating lower-cost power with net zero emissions.
