Publication of Zero Emmission Power Plant (SEQ) documents

9 December 2013


The Zero Emission Power Plant (ZEPP) project ran from 2007 - 2011. It was an innovative concept for an oxyfuel combustion 50MWe power plant at Drachten/Akkrum in the Netherlands, designed for a capture rate of 250,000 tonnes of CO2 a year. The captured CO2 would then be transported and used for enhanced recovery projects, resulting in a yield of natural gas of about 40 million cubic metres. We publish the documents relating to this project at the request of AgentschapNL.


The ZEPP project involved the collaboration of SEQ Nederland BV, ENECO Milieu BV, Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the Stichting Energy Valley initiative. The project costs amounted to €60 million of which €10 million has been provided by the Ministry of Finance.


The project was expected to lead towards the development of large-scale oxyfuel power plants, increased efficiencies with new turbine technologies with a ‘flexible concept' that could be repeated on many locations, perhaps driven by storage or oxygen availability.
