The password is ‘CCUSAdvisors!’.
In 2018 the Government published the CCUS Action Plan, which set out our ambition to have the option to deploy CCUS during the 2030s, subject to costs coming down sufficiently, and our commitment to enable the deployment of the first CCUS facility in the UK, to be commissioning from the mid-2020s. It also highlighted that the barriers to deployment of CCUS are primarily commercial, not technical, and set out the actions we were taking through our Review of CCUS Delivery and Investment Frameworks to identify investable commercial models. In 2019, Government consulted on potential business models for CCUS, across power CCUS, industrial CCUS, CO2 transport and storage infrastructure, and hydrogen production with CCUS.
This potential procurement will seek engineering and technical advisory support for:
– Further development of business models for CCUS, including testing potential models from an engineering and technical perspective, followed by any engineering and technical advice required on implementation of these models.
– Any potential commercial negotiations which Government chooses to enter in to with CCUS projects.
Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA)
This research project will be procured through the Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets (HELGA) dynamic purchasing system which is run by the Crown Commercial Service. This will be run through HELGA Service 1 – Energy Advisory, Design and Technical Services
Full details of this requirement will be shared with appointed HELGA suppliers when the competition launches. To be eligible to bid into this project, you will have to be an appointed supplier on HELGA, which we recommend doing by the end of October 2019. If you are interested in this project, we encourage you to sign up to HELGA as soon as possible as it can take up to 15 working days for the CCS to process your application.
Instructions on how to register on HELGA will be outlined at the supplier engagement day and we will be have a representative from the CCS at the event to provide a step by step guide on how suppliers can register with HELGA as well as answer any questions you may have about HELGA and the tendering process.
