Hydrogen Power Abu Dhabi is a is a "60/40 joint venture between Masdar and BP to build the world's first commercial-scale hydrogen-fuelled power plant utilising fossil fuel feedstock and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). The proposal is for an approximately 400 megawatt MW power station fuelled by natural gas. The project would involve the capture of 1.7 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year with a notional construction start date of 2011 with "pre-comissioning activities to commence" in 2014.
In its website the company states that "June 2009 saw completion of Front End Engineering Design (FEED) activities. Development of Request For Proposal (RFP) for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract is also complete and ready for issuing to market later in 2010 once commercial arrangements with off-takers have been finalised."
The company states that "The project requires a total capital investment (excluding CO2 transportation and storage) of about AED 7 billion (US$2 billion) ... The partners aspire to make the decision to proceed with construction by the 2nd quarter of 2011. If a decision to proceed can be made at this time, the plant could commence pre-commissioning activities in 2014."
