CCS Project

Peterhead CCS Power Station

The project aims at the construction of a new gas fired power station (910MWel) with an integrated post-combustion CO2 capture plant at the site of the existing Peterhead Power Station in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The CO2 captured will be transported for permanent storage under the North Sea as part of the Acorn CCS project. The project will have a CO2 capture and storage capacity of around 1.5 Mtpa and is part of the Scottish Cluster.
