Latest news: further consultation on the pumping station launched
On 12 February we launched further consultation on the location and design of the proposed pumping station required near to the coast between the villages of Barmston and Fraisthorpe.
Following feedback received as part of the consultation held in autumn 2013, we are proposing a revised location for the pumping station, immediately to the north of the previously proposed site. We have also updated the proposed design of the pumping station to take account of the new location.
We are asking people to give us their views on the proposed revised location and design for the pumping station. The consultation will run until 14 March 2014.
You can view the revised location on the project map at the bottom of this page. You can view the updated design on the pumping station page. You can find out more about the consultation in the consultation & engagement section.
About the Yorkshire and Humber CCS Project
National Grid is helping to develop solutions to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power stations and industrial plants in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
A solution being explored is carbon capture, transportation and storage technology – capturing carbon dioxide emissions and transporting them to be stored permanently beneath the seabed in natural porous rock formations or depleted oil and gas fields.
