Home Industrial Case Studies Development of the first Carbon Capture Plant.


Construction of the UK’s First Carbon Capture and Usage Plant (CCU).


A full construction of the first industrial scale Carbon Capture Plant in the UK, working with TATA Chemicals Europe (TCE) to drive the co-ordination, delivery and commissioning of this facility.  The Carbon Capture Plant traps 40,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.


The development of the Carbon Capture and Utilisation Plant (CCU) represented a challenging and complex project to capture and purify carbon dioxide from the power plant emission gases.  The purified CO2 is re-used as a raw material for the manufacturing of high-grade sodium bicarbonate and will reduce TCE’s carbon emissions at the combined heat and power plant by 11%.

We have meticulously choreographed the Carbon Capture Plant on-site works collaborating with and coordinating a diverse workforce,  from process engineers to groundwork contractors.  Additionally,  we have been instrumental managing the safely delivery around live manufacturing operations on the TCE Winnington site.


Key Achievements

  • Project-managing the end-to-end complex construction of the Carbon Capture Plant
  • Interfacing with existing live chemical manufacturing and energy plant operations on site
  • Maintaining a high standard of Health and Safety performance. The project  has been safely undertaken by utilising a unique approach to cross boundary operational safe system management.   As a result of our expertise supporting the TCE team, there has been no lost time injuries during the 2+ year project.  The impact of COVID-19 pandemic has been minimal.

The Carbon Capture Plant project is now operational, and Revolution Projects continues to support TCE with post-commissioning activities.

Check this fascinating time-lapse video of how the project progressed over a three-month period.
