Providing FEED services for Heidelberg Materials UK’s carbon capture cement production facility

In partnership with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, we’re providing the front end engineering and design (FEED) services.

A first of its kind in the UK, the project will support the development of a ground breaking carbon capture facility at Heidelberg Materials’ cement works in Padeswood, North Wales, UK.

The FEED contract comes after previously working with MHI Group on several carbon capture projects, including the pre-FEED for the Padeswood project.

The FEED project stage will support Heidelberg Materials UK with securing UK government approval, achieving a positive final investment decision and enabling the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) stage to commence in the first quarter of 2025.

Work will be carried out by our teams in London, Manchester, Aberdeen and Glasgow. With further support from our global team of carbon capture experts.

A stepping stone for hard-to-abate industries

The Padeswood project has been selected as a Track 1 capture project by the UK Government and is a key establishing project within the HyNet industrial cluster. Once operational, it is anticipated to capture up to 800,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, the equivalent of taking 320,000 cars off the road. The project aims to play a crucial role in the decarbonization efforts of the UK cement industry.

Simon Willis, CEO, Heidelberg Materials UK, said: “This is a decisive next step in our plans to install carbon capture technology at our Padeswood cement works. Once operational, it will provide net zero building materials for major projects across the country, enabling us to help decarbonize the construction industry and meet our ambition to become a net zero business.”

“Securing this contract is not only testament to the strength of our relationships with Heidelberg Materials UK and MHI but also reflects our execution of the pre-FEED and our team’s expertise in delivering FEED services for first of a kind CCUS facilities. Padeswood is a landmark project in the UK’s decarbonization strategy and aligns with our commitment to making sustainable transformation a reality,” says Marino Barbi, Senior Vice President, UK.
