In a first phase, Humber Zero would capture 8 million metric tonnes per annum of CO2 emissions, with the potential to target 30 million mt CO2 emissions from the wider Humber Cluster to the west of Immingham.
The Humber Zero decarbonization project would then seek to develop of a hydrogen hub producing both green and blue hydrogen .
Wood Group, Imperial College of London and the University of Sheffield are also involved in the project, which is part of Innovate UK's Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund competition to deliver 2050 Net Zero objectives. (Source: Phillips 66, Platts, 19 May, 2020)

According to the company, the high turbulence and high wind speed site requires some turbines to be run in a reduced power mode.
Wood Group's control engineering team began working on a solution in October 2016 and, together with Romax Technologies, has
recommended an automatic derating system to minimize turbine damage and otherwise optimize power production. Issues with overproduction, which can result in additional turbine wear, were also dealt with using a power feedback loop.
