Phillips 66, Vitol Ink Humber Zero CO2 MoU (Int'l. Report)
Phillips 66, Vitol
Date: 2020-05-27
Phillips 66, Uniper and Vitol-owned VPI Immingham have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to install post-combustion CO2 capture equipment on two of VPI Immingham's three gas-fired power generators and selected processing units at the Humber and Lindsay refineries, the companies said Tuesday.

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.

Wood Group Provides Control Solution for EDF EN Mexico Wind Farm (Ind. Report)
SgurrEnergy,Wood Group
Date: 2017-07-10
Aberdeen-Scotland-headquartered energy services provider Wood Group reports it has contracted to provide control solution for the 27 Clipper C89 wind turbines at EDF EN Mexico's 67.5MW La Mata y La Ventosa wind farm in Oaxaca, Mexico.

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.

Carbon Trust Touts Low-Carbon Collaboration (Int'l)
Carbon Trust
Date: 2017-06-16
In the UK, the Carbon Trust reports it has launched the Energy Systems Innovation Platform (ESIP), a collaboration with Centrica, Dong Energy, SSE, Scottish Power, Statoil and Wood Group Clean Energy to address issues preventing a more effective transition to a low cost and low-carbon energy system. The ESIP is supported by the Scottish government and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The initiative aims to find solutions to regulatory and other barriers deterring investment in energy storage, energy efficiency and similar technologies and solutions to achieving low carbon energy and a low carbon energy economy. The first results of this work are expected by the year end.
