NTPC, GE Gas Power sign MoU to demonstrate hydrogen co-firing in gas turbinesNTPC - 175 Change: 3.00 (1.74 %)
NTPC and GE Gas Power have signed today a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for feasibility to demonstrate hydrogen (H2) co-firing blended with natural gas in GE’s 9E gas turbines installed at NTPC’s Kawas combined-cycle gas power plant in Gujarat. Under this significant collaboration, the two companies will jointly explore the pathways to reduce CO2 emissions from Kawas gas power plant and further implementation at scale across NTPC’s installed units in India.
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. 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. In parallel, it is crucial to invest and effectively utilise the proven technology that can generate electricity, which is affordable, accessible and reliable. This MoU is among the steps being taken in the direction to meet the objectives under the National Hydrogen Mission.
