Liberty Steel’s Hartlepool pipes division has been selected to supply pipelines for a key UK energy infrastructure development project.

The project, led by the Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP) and Net Zero Teesside Power (NZT Power), aims to reduce carbon emissions in the UK significantly.

According to the announcement, Liberty Pipes Hartlepool (LPH) will manufacture and deliver both onshore and offshore pipelines for the Teesside-based project. 

This represents one of eight engineering, procurement, and construction packages awarded for the project, with a combined value of approximately £4 billion (about $5 billion).

"LIBERTY Pipes Hartlepool is tremendously proud to be selected for this flagship project,” Jeffrey Kabel, Liberty Steel's Chief Transformation Officer, said in a statement.

“We see this as a landmark first of hopefully many similar projects in the UK and internationally that we can be involved in.”

NEP's focus is building the CO2 transportation and storage infrastructure needed to serve East Coast Cluster carbon capture projects. 

Meanwhile, NZT Power is aiming to be the world's first commercial-scale gas-fired power station equipped with carbon capture technology.

LPH's expertise is expected to contribute to the development of new energy infrastructure projects in the UK and internationally. 

The project is anticipated to create jobs, strengthen the UK's energy security, and support the nation's transition to cleaner energy sources, aligning with Liberty Steel's wider decarbonization strategy.

It's important to note that the final contract award is subject to regulatory approval and final investment decisions (FID) expected by September 2024. 

Pipe production for the NEP and NZT Power project is slated to begin in the first quarter of 2025, with the projects aiming for commercial operations to commence in 2027.
