INNIO has launched its “Ready for H2” portfolio that includes 100% hydrogen powered Jenbacher engines.
The “Ready for H2” gas engine portfolio is built on a long history of innovation with more than 30 years experience and expertise in the use of renewable fuels and hydrogen-rich fuels.
This includes syngas and process gases for power generation.
As of today, the Jenbacher Type 4 gas engines, which have an approximate output of between 500 to 900kW, are available for operation with 100% hydrogen or mixtures of natural gas and hydrogen.
From 2022, all other INNIO Jenbacher gas engines will be offered with a “Ready for H2” option, capable of running with up to 25% volume of hydrogen in pipeline gas and being capable to be readily converted from natural gas to 100% hydrogen operation.
As well as this, most of the currently installed INNIO Jenbacher natural gas fuelled fleet can be upgraded to operate with up to 25% volume of hydrogen in pipeline gas.
INNIO has stated its commitment to leading the deployment of hydrogen engines to facilitate the acceleration and transformation from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources.
Typically, INNIO Jenbacher hydrogen-fuelled gas engines will be operating in a combined heat and power configuration, achieving around 90% hydrogen fuel utilisation.
Carlos Lange, President and CEO of INNIO, said, “I am proud of INNIO’s announcement of the first ‘Ready for H2’ product portfolio in the 20kW – 10.4MW power generation space.
“Our broad portfolio of innovative and fuel flexible Jenbacher gas engines – capable of operating on natural gas, carbon neutral biogas or hydrogen-rich fuels – are helping to pave the way to a greener energy future.
“Jenbacher gas engines running on natural gas today can be converted to H2 operation when hydrogen becomes more readily available.
“This means that customers who invest in Jenbacher natural gas engines today, are also investing for the future.”
