ONE of the world’s biggest firms has signed up to jointly develop the groundbreaking carbon capture and storage scheme based in Doncaster.

Samsung yesterday agreed a deal in South Korea to take a 15 per cent stake in 2Co Energy’s 650 megawatt Don Valley Power Project at Stainforth, which is also bidding for UK and European funding.

The Don Valley Power Project is expected to create thousands of UK jobs, boost national energy security, and supply low carbon electricity to one million UK homes from the end of 2016.
