Carbon capture specialist joins Ayrshire power station consortium

Carbon capture specialist Doosan Power System has joined a consortium of contractors looking to move forward plans for a £3 billion carbon capture and storage coal-fired power station at Hunterston in Ayrshire.

The company formed the consortium with client Ayrshire Power, as well as US-based engineering firm Fluor and oil and gas company Petrofac. Other partners for the scheme had earlier pulled out of the project, after local opposition voiced concerns over the environmental impact of the station.

If given the go-ahead the group anticipates beginning construction in 2013 ahead of a proposed 2017 completion date.
