Gentari, IHI sign MoU to develop green ammonia value chain


IHI Corp. (IHI), a Japanese engineering company, and Gentari Hydrogen Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas’ clean energy arm Gentari Sdn Bhd (Gentari), have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to jointly explore the establishment of a global green ammonia value chain that spans the production, transportation, storage and utilization of green ammonia in Asia Pacific and other areas of mutual interest.

Additionally, the two companies will explore the commercial utilization of IM270, a fully ammonia-powered gas turbine, developed by IHI with support from Japan’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

“Anticipating commencement by 2026, this commercial demonstration could potentially be the world’s first fully ammonia-powered gas turbine to be deployed,” stated a media release.

“With this collaboration, IHI and Gentari aim to create demand for green ammonia in Malaysia and the broader Asia Pacific, accelerating the adoption of clean hydrogen as a viable energy transition lever, in line with Malaysia’s National Energy Transition Roadmap and Hydrogen Economy & Technology Roadmap as well as the region’s net zero aspirations.”
