Wood has been named the integration project management contractor (IPMC) for Humber Zero, one of the UK’s most significant industrial decarbonisation projects.
The Humber emits 12.4 million tonnes of carbon per year, making it the UK’s most carbon-intensive industrial cluster. Humber Zero is a hybrid carbon capture and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen project developed by the Phillips 66 Humber Refinery and Vitol’s VPI Immingham power station.
It has the potential to decarbonize the Immingham industrial complex by absorbing up to 8 million tonnes of CO2 per year and transporting it to adjacent offshore storage facilities. The study has received funding from the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
Immingham will become a carbon capture and hydrogen center, giving cost efficient decarbonised energy supply and storage options to both industry and the National Grid, according to the decarbonisation plan established for Humber Zero.
A diverse team from Wood will assist the creation and integration of designs throughout the FEED packages, including interface management, safety studies, licensor selection, and future service scoping, as part of the scope of work. Furthermore, Wood will assist VPI Immingham and Phillips 66 with the FEED delivery and EPC contractor tendering processes. This funding builds on Wood’s feasibility and pre-FEED investigations, which helped the Humber Zero project get off the ground.
