GE Gas demonstrating hydrogen co-firing with Indian power utility

NTPC will provide the H2 required for the project.

GE Gas Power and Indian power utility NTPC will explore hydrogen co-firing blended with natural gas in GE’s 9E gas turbine installed at NTPC’s Kawas gas power plant in Gujarat, India,  according to a press release.

The 645 MW gas power plant is powered by four GE 9E gas turbines operating in a combined-cycle mode. NTPC will provide the H2 required for the project.

GE’s E- Class gas turbine portfolio currently has the capability to burn up to 100% by volume of hydrogen when blended with natural gas. This capability varies depending on the type of combustion system used. For fuels with over 5% hydrogen by volume, gas turbine accessories need to be evaluated and possibly modified to reliably deliver the fuel to the combustors.

“NTPC, with a large fleet of power generation facilities delivering more than 70 GW across India, has been at the forefront when it comes to piloting new hydrogen-related initiatives,” Ujjwal Kanti Bhattacharya, Director (Projects) at NTPC, said in the release. “NTPC is committed to playing a key role in India’s energy transition journey as the country marches ahead to achieve net-zero target and climate goals.”
