Combined Heat and Power
Our commitment to lower carbon technologies is demonstrated by our $400 million investment to expand our Immingham Combined Heat and Power Plant
(CHP) in the UK. Due online in 2009, the 450-megawatt expansion – which will raise output to 1.18 gigawatts – will make Immingham CHP one of the world’s largest and most efficient power stations, contributing 12 percent towards the UK’s target to achieve 10 gigawatts of low carbon CHP by 2010.
CHP technology enables the production of electricity and steam and higher levels of energy efficiency and with lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than traditional methods of power generation.
Immingham CHP began commercial operation in 2004 and is one of the largest, cleanest and most efficient power plants of its type in Europe. It uses 20 percent less fuel and produces 25 percent less CO2 than the alternative of producing heat and power separately. As well as being a clean source of electricity, the plant burns surplus fuel gas produced by our neighbouring Humber Refinery, which as previously flared.
Immingham CHP provides steam and electricity to the Humber Refinery and feeds electricity to the UK National Grid. It is well placed to supply low-carbon energy to a wide range of local industrial customers.
At the Humber Refinery
, we have created a 120-acre woodland called Mayflower Wood, the largest project of its kind in the country. Since 2005, more than 67,000 trees and shrubs from a variety of native species have been planted. Employees worked with their neighbours to develop the project, which includes family picnic areas, nature trails, educational boards and a looped walkway connecting local villages. The wood is adjacent to the 15-acre Houlton’s Covert deer park, nature reserve and classrooms, which were developed for school and community visits and is also run by refinery volunteers. www.mayflowerwood.co.uk
