Hogan Lovells advises Alstom-Drax-BOC on contract awarded to White Rose CCS project

Hogan Lovells has advised the Alstom-Drax-BOC consortium, Capture Power, on the Department of Energy & Climate Change FEED contract awarded to the White Rose carbon capture and storage (CSS) project, announced on 9 December by energy and climate change secretary Edward Davey. 

The £2bn White Rose CCS project, including a carbon dioxide transportation and storage solution, is the first to be allocated funds under the government’s £1bn CCS commercialisation programme.

The White Rose CCS proposal includes a coal power plant with full CCS that will be able to provide clean electricity to more than 630,000 homes, which is being developed by Capture Power.

The Hogan Lovells team advising Capture Power was led by global head of IPPF London partner Adrian Walker and senior associate Alex Harrison, supported by partners Andrew Briggs and Jacques Derenne, of-counsel Chris Healey and associates Hugo Lidbetter, Edward Southall and Claire Corbett.
