PSM, Thomassen Energy, and Hanwha Set New Industry Record in Hydrogen Fuel Blend for Gas Turbines
PSM, Thomassen Energy, and Hanwha Power Systems, along with Hanwha’s portfolio peer companies in Korea, have just made history by operating a Frame 7E gas turbine with an impressive 60% hydrogen blend – the highest ever in the industry.
They achieved this with PSM’s FlameSheet™ Combustor Platform – capable of delivering an unparalleled level of fuel flexibility and emissions performance.
This power plant was designed for a site in Daesan, South Korea. The turbine used a mix of natural gas, hydrogen, and hydrogen-containing gas, operating at base load with 60% hydrogen by volume.
This type of technology is a game-changer for power producers worldwide striving to strike a balance between affordability, reliability, and sustainability. Upgrades like this to existing plants can really help future proof operations.
What a fantastic leap for the energy industry! Let’s take a moment to imagine the tremendous potential this holds for our transition towards a more sustainable future.
