Technip Energies (PARIS:TE), together with Shell Catalysts & Technologies and Zachry Group, have been awarded a Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for a carbon capture unit project in Baytown, Texas, USA.
The project will be designed to capture two million tons per annum of CO2, which represents 95% of CO2 emissions from processed flue gas from Calpine’s Baytown Energy Center (BTEC) and a natural gas combined cycle power plant (CCGT).
Technip Energies and Shell Catalysts & Technologies have a strategic alliance to collaborate on the marketing, licensing and execution of projects using Shell’s CANSOLV* CO2 Capture System technology. The two organizations recently strengthened this alliance, which began in 2012, to allow them to better respond to the rapidly growing carbon capture and storage (CCS) market and the need for affordable and proven solutions.
Zachry’s scope in the FEED study will include outside battery limits (OSBL) engineering, which includes utility systems, loading and off-loading facilities, operation and maintenance buildings, and site preparation. Zachry will also conduct detailed construction planning and estimating for the overall project, with the ultimate development of a final EPC cost estimate and schedule development.
Calpine’s BTEC is a natural gas-fired power plant that incorporates combined-cycle and cogeneration technologies for highly efficient operations. The plant consists of three combustion turbines with three heat recovery steam generators and has been recognized as a Showcase Plant by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Laure Mandrou, SVP Carbon Free Solutions of Technip Energies, stated, “While we are currently executing the FEED to capture carbon at Calpine’s power plant in Deer Park, we are pleased to also be selected to execute the FEED for this large carbon capture project at its CCGT power plant in Baytown. We are fully committed to support Calpine in its ambition to decarbonize its assets and make this project an industrial success together with our partner Zachry. This award confirms the robustness of our carbon capture offering in partnership with Shell utilizing its CANSOLV® technology and our proven execution capability. We are pleased to continue to grow our footprint in the CCS space in the US and provide a leading contribution to the decarbonization of the power industry.”
Nick Flinn, Vice President, Decarbonisation Technologies, Shell Catalysts & Technologies, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Calpine for another CCS project. Building on the success of the ongoing Deer Park CCS project, we look forward to developing more learnings and generating more value together with Calpine by deploying the CANSOLV technology at Baytown. By working closely with Technip Energies, which is performing the engineering and procurement of the CANSOLV plant, and Zachary Group, which is performing the balance of plant engineering, procurement and construction for the project, we will deliver a complete end-to-end solution for Calpine that could serve as a blueprint in the industry.”
Mike Kotara, President, Zachry Sustainability Solutions, Zachry Group, stated, “We are excited to support Calpine and to contribute to the design of this significant carbon capture project. Zachry Sustainability Solutions is committed to supporting the energy transition through engineering and construction of decarbonizing technologies, including carbon capture, hydrogen/ammonia, renewable fuels, and nuclear energy.”
Caleb Stephenson, EVP of Commercial Operations, Calpine, commented: “We’re excited about expanding this collaboration, which creates another opportunity for Calpine to provide reliable, clean, and affordable energy 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our Baytown project is an important part of our far-reaching efforts to showcase the full potential of CCS as a critical emissions-reduction technology and we are eager to continue with its development”.
