The inventor of the Allam-Fetvedt Cycle, a novel power cycle that uses supercritical carbon dioxide
SEUK has been developing the 2,000-acre Wilton International site in Teesside’s industrial area as a multi-occupancy manufacturing hub with “plug and play” energy capabilities. The site is outfitted with water distribution and liquid effluent networks, and a natural gas distribution network, and it already has four combined heat and power (CHP) units—two fired with natural gas and two fired with biomass—with a combined capacity of up to 200 MW and a total steam output of 460 tonnes/hour.
Wilton International is also quickly growing into an innovation hub. In June, the site was chosen to host the onshore electricity converter station for RWE Renewables’ 1.4-GW Sofia Wind Farm, which is under development on Dogger Bank, 195 kilometers from the Teesside coast.
“These services are complemented by our fleet of fast-acting, decentralized power stations and battery storage sites situated throughout England and Wales,” SEUK told POWER. “Monitored and controlled from our central operations facility in Solihull, these flexible assets deliver electricity to the national grid, helping to balance the UK energy system and ensure reliable power for homes and businesses.”
The Whitetail Clean Energy NET Power project, however, will look and operate differently, an 8 Rivers spokesman said. “This power station does not have massive chimneys unlike normal gas power stations. The process combusts natural gas with oxygen, rather than air, and uses supercritical carbon dioxide as a working fluid to drive a turbine instead of steam.
