Intermountain Power Agency transitions to hydrogen

Engineering, procurement, consulting and construction company Black & Veatch is helping Intermountain Power Agency (IPA) transition to green hydrogen as it works to decrease its carbon footprint across Utah, Nevada and California.

Black & Veatch has been selected as Owner’s Engineer for the agency’s Intermountain Power Project (IPP) Renewable Project, which marks one of the earliest installations of combustion turbine technology designed to use a high percentage of green hydrogen.

The Kansas City-based company has a longstanding relationship with IPA that dates back to the 1980s when it designed the original coal-fuelled IPP, which it now plans to replace with an 840MW natural gas-fuelled combined cycle power plant in 2025.

Two single-shaft advanced-class combustion turbine combined cycle units will be commercially guaranteed capable of blending 30-percent green hydrogen at start-up, with plans to increase hydrogen utilisation to 100-percent hydrogen by 2045.
