Large-capacity, long-term energy storage and usage needs are growing as renewables spread. Accelerating decarbonization is required even in industries that face challenges electrifying. Hydrogen, ammonia and other clean fuels offer solutions. The MHI Group is innovating these technologies and building the value chain.
Realizing a hydrogen ecosystem in the quest for carbon neutrality
As the world works to achieve a carbon neutral society by 2050, clean fuels that do not emit CO₂ during combustion are gaining attention as alternatives to fossil fuels. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group has a wide range of core technologies and solutions across the hydrogen value chain, including our leading-edge hydrogen technologies. By combining these solutions with technological innovations in clean fuels, we will lead the way in building a more robust hydrogen and ammonia value chain.
Technologies and solutions to cover the value chain
By leading the construction of a global clean fuels value chain that encompasses production, transportation, storage and utilization, MHI Group will contribute to the creation of a hydrogen society. Additionally, MHI Group’s mission includes providing the right technologies at the right time to help create a carbon-neutral world. In addition to our own technologies and products, we will promote the development of technologies through partnerships with innovative companies, to provide solutions that cover the entire value chain.
Global attempts to realize a hydrogen ecosystem
In addition to leading-edge hydrogen technologies, the MHI Group has the world‘s only* gas turbine combined cycle power plant demonstration facility (T-point 2). We are involved in a wide range of clean fuels related projects around the world to stimulate large-scale demand for hydrogen use. These efforts aim to help expand the hydrogen supply chain and reduce costs in production and transport. *As of November 2021
We also aim to establish decarbonization technologies throughout the value chain by 2030 through feasibility tests in leading markets, primarily in Europe and the United States. These efforts accompanied by the construction of a hydrogen ecosystem that encompasses production, transportation, storage and utilization, will contribute to decarbonization in a wide range of sectors.
Hydrogen Gas Turbine
Mitsubishi Power's hydrogen firing technology enable power plant owners to decarbonize their existing Gas Turbine Combined Cycle (GTCC) plants by converting them to hydrogen co-firing, or even 100% hydrogen firing. With a minimum of modification, Mitsubishi Power supports the transition process by identifying key preparatory and operational steps necessary to decarbonize generation plants while working with customers to create a roadmap for reducing CO₂ emissions.
With experience manufacturing over 2,600 compressors, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has been offering compressors that boost the pressure of hydrogen-rich gas using high-speed centrifugal compressor technology. To further accommodate high-purity hydrogen, MHI is working to deliver super-high speed single-shaft multi-stage (in-line) and multi-shaft multi-stage (Integrally geared) compressors. We plan to commercialize these compressors by the middle of 2020s. MHI will continue to offer optimal compressor solutions to meet the growing demand for hydrogen, in which will increase in capacity in various situations, such as production, transportation, storage, and use as we welcome a full-scale hydrogen society.
