Air Products and Baker Hughes have formed a global strategic partnership to develop next-generation hydrogen compression, lowering the cost of production and speeding up the adoption of hydrogen as a zero-carbon fuel.
Baker Hughes will provide advanced hydrogen compression and gas turbine technology to Air Products for global projects, including NovaLT16 turbines for Air Products’ net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and advanced compression technology for the NEOM carbon-free hydrogen project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as part of the collaboration.
“Air Products chose Baker Hughes for its leading-edge compression and gas turbine offerings and robust hydrogen experience,” said Dr. Samir J. Serhan, chief operation officer, Air Products. “This advanced technology is another key step toward achieving economically viable blue and green hydrogen and net-zero targets.”
“Our transformative hydrogen compression and gas turbine technology lowers the overall production cost for new energy frontiers such as hydrogen and is a strategic enabler for key projects,” said Rod Christie, executive vice president, Turbomachinery & Process Solutions at Baker Hughes. “Our proven technology is helping to accelerate the hydrogen economy, and our collaboration with Air Products will be critical for a net-zero future.”
