INNIO announced the debut of their “Ready for H2” portfolio, which comprises Jenbacher H2-engines that run entirely on hydrogen.
INNIO’s “Ready for H2” gas engine portfolio is based on a long history of innovation and competence in the utilization of renewable fuels and hydrogen-rich fuels for power generation, such as syngas and process gases.
Jenbacher Type 4 gas engines – with an approximate output range of 500 to 900 kilowatts (kW) – are available to run entirely on hydrogen or on a blend of hydrogen and natural gas.
By 2022, all additional INNIO Jenbacher gas engines will be available with a “Ready for H2” option, allowing them to operate with up to 25% hydrogen in pipeline gas and easily convert from natural gas to 100% hydrogen operation.
Additionally, the majority of the INNIO Jenbacher natural gas-fueled fleet installed to date may be updated to operate with up to 25% hydrogen in pipeline gas or converted to 100% hydrogen operation.
“I am proud of INNIO’s announcement of the first ‘Ready for H2’ product portfolio in the 200 kW – 10.4 MW power generation space. Our broad portfolio of innovative and fuel flexible Jenbacher gas engines – capable of operating on natural gas, carbon neutral biogas or hydrogen-rich fuels – are helping to pave the way to a greener energy future,” commented Carlos Lange, president and CEO of INNIO. “Jenbacher gas engines running on natural gas today can be converted to H2 operation when hydrogen becomes more readily available. This means that customers who invest in Jenbacher natural gas engines today, are also investing for the future.”
