India’s largest power producer NTPC Ltd has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. Japan (MHI) and its arm Mitsubishi Power India to demonstrate the feasibility for hydrogen co-firing blended with natural gas in MHI’s 701D gas turbines installed at NTPC Auraiya gas power plant in Uttar Pradesh.
The Auraiya Gas Power Plant has cumulative installed capacity of 663 MW with four gas turbines operating in combined-cycle mode.
“Hydrogen co-firing in gas turbines can play a key role in reducing CO2 emissions. NTPC is exploring various new hydrogen generation technologies along with hydrogen usage so as to ensure future readiness, develop the required capabilities, and technical expertise, and align with the national decarbonizing and hydrogen mission targets,” stated NTPC.
Under this MoU, NTPC and MHI will collaborate to carry out the study and identify key actions for introducing hydrogen co-firing at NTPC Auraiya gas-based combined cycle power plant. The study will identify key actions for co-firing for various percentages of hydrogen such as 5%, 15%, 30%, 50%, and 100%. NTPC will supply the hydrogen required for the project.
