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.
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.
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.
