We’ve continuously invested in hydrogen technology throughout the years and acquired extensive experience in downstream applications that involve hydrogen, as much as 100% hydrogen. In fact, our experience in the treatment of hydrogen began in 1962 with our first hydrogen compressor – today we have over 2,000 hydrogen compressors installed and running around the world – while in 2008 we built the first turbine in the world (10 MW power) to run on 100% hydrogen for Enel’s Fusina Hydrogen Power Project in Italy. Most recently we’re working on a number of projects to introduce hydrogen into existing infrastructure with solutions that can be deployed and scaled in a cost competitive manner:
