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.
The renewed generation facility will be owned by IPA and operated by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and provide 840 megawatts (MW) of reliable energy to the IPA purchasers it serves, including Los Angeles and municipalities in other parts of California and Utah.
