Green Power Stations

ConocoPhillips operates the Immingham Combined Heat and Power plant, one of the greenest power stations in the world generating 730 MW of electricity. It produces electricity and creates steam, which is used by the nearby Humber and Lindsey refineries. The plant, together with the Humber refinery, is part of an ultra-low-carbon integrated energy hub.

Bioenergy Projects

Proximity to the UK’s largest port complex, Europe’s food town and the agricultural hinterland of Lincolnshire, makes the area extremely attractive for green energy facilities. Companies involved in bioenergy and biomass projects in the area include Greenergy; Total; Vireol; Abengoa Bioenergy; Helius/RWE Innogy; Siemens and Encycle.

World-class Refining

The Humber Refinery is one of the most sophisticated in Europe. It is a fully integrated plant that produces light products and fuel oil. It is the only coking refinery in the UK, the world’s largest producer of specialty graphite cokes and the largest anode coke producer in Europe. .
