Enabling decarbonization while maintaining the high reliability of gas turbines
There is growing interest in power plants to decarbonize from natural gas to hydrogen and achieve carbon neutrality in the upcoming decades. Takasago Hydrogen Park, located at Mitsubishi Power’s Takasago Machinery Works is the world’s first center for the validation of hydrogen-related technologies. The H-25 gas turbine, a 100% hydrogen-fired 30-40 MW class gas turbine, will undergo verification in the Takasago Hydrogen Park to reduce the risks associated with hydrogen combustion.
Takasago Hydrogen Park – A comprehensive technical verification of hydrogen production, storage, and power generation
Established by modifying and expanding the existing validation facility T-Point 2, Takasago Hydrogen Park is the world’s first complex that can validate the full value chain of hydrogen production, storage, and power generation. When developing new gas turbine technologies and digital solutions, Mitsubishi Power undergoes long-term operation of at least 8,000 hours of validation at T-Point 2, equivalent to nearly one year of normal operation. Under Mitsubishi Power’s development philosophy of “investing in time for high reliability,” we aim to complete the validation of 100% hydrogen combustion for the H-25 gas turbine in 2024 and commercialize it by 2025.
