Long Ridge Energy to covert Ohio-based power plant to hydrogen

Ohio-based energy supplier Long Ridge Energy Terminal has today announced plans to transition its 485-megawatt combined-cycle power plant to run on carbon-free hydrogen.

In collaboration with New Fortress Energy and GE, Long Ridge hopes to provide carbon-free power to its customers as early as next year by blending hydrogen into the gas stream and transition the plant to be capable of burning 100% green hydrogen over the next decade.

With commercial operations planned for November 2021, Long Ridge will be the first purpose-built hydrogen-burning power plant in the US and the first worldwide to blend hydrogen in a GE H-class gas turbine.

The plant will feature a GE 7HA.02 combustion turbine, which can burn between 15-20% hydrogen by volume in the gas stream initially, with the capability to transition to 100% hydrogen over time.
