Scottish and Southern Energy to build carbon capture pilot

Perth, U.K., November 11, 2009 – Scottish and Southern Energy will submit a planning application to local authorities for the development of a carbon capture demonstrator at its Ferrybridge coal fired plant near Castleford in Yorkshire.

In its current operations SSE generates 4,000 MW of coal-fired capacity, which accounts for almost 40 percent of its overall power generation capacity. The carbon capture trial facility will be developed and operated in collaboration with Doosan Babcock.

The partnership intends to demonstrate the carbon dioxide capture element of carbon capture and storage technology. It is hoped construction will start next year, with the trial itself commencing in early 2011 and running through to the end of 2012.
