Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has received an order for two M501JAC power trains for the Intermountain Power Plant (IPP), a renewable-hydrogen energy hub in Delta, Utah, US.
The Intermountain Power Agency (IPA), owner of the IPP and a political subdivision of the state of Utah, ordered the equipment as part of a plan to transition from coal, to natural gas and finally to renewable hydrogen fuel.
The transition will start in 2025, to replace the coal-fired units at IPP, when the turbines will be commercially guaranteed capable of using a fuel mix of 30% hydrogen and 70% natural gas fuel. Over the next 20 years, the hydrogen capability will be systematically increased to 100% renewable hydrogen, enabling carbon-free utility-scale power generation.
