Foster Wheeler awarded FEED contract by Samsung C&T in UK

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Engineering and Construction Group subsidiary has been awarded a contract by Samsung C&T ECUK Ltd (Samsung), a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung C&T Korea, to participate in a comprehensive update of the front-end engineering design (FEED) developed previously by a third party for 2Co Energy Limited’s (2Co) Don Valley power project in Stainforth, Yorkshire, UK. Samsung C&T is the contractor appointed by 2Co to execute the overall FEED update and is also the nominated engineering, procurement and construction contractor for this carbon capture power project.

The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed. Foster Wheeler’s scope of work is scheduled for completion in the first-quarter of 2013. The project is expected to start operation by the end of 2016.

Foster Wheeler will undertake the majority of the process engineering, process integration and FEED update work for inside the battery limits and will manage the process licensors’ technical scope for the gasification and acid gas removal units.

The Don Valley power project is part of a carbon capture, utilization and storage scheme (CCUS) being developed by 2Co, comprised of a 900 MW installed capacity (650 MW net export capacity) integrated coal gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant, CO2 transportation and storage combined with enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The plant is designed to capture, as CO2, approximately 90 per cent of the carbon in the fossil fuel.

Foster Wheeler has already been appointed by 2Co Energy under a separate contract as a project management consultant for the project, initially up to final investment decision expected at the end of 2013.
