GE Gas Power and IHI to develop ammonia for gas turbines

GE Gas Power has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IHI Corporation (IHI) to develop jointly ammonia combustion technologies for heavy duty gas turbines to generate electricity with reduced or near zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

The collaboration aligns with the companies’ commitment to support the global transition towards a lower-carbon future in the power generation sector.

The MoU marks a significant milestone following the announcement in June 2021 of the first MoU between GE and IHI to carry out an economic assessment for the use of ammonia as a carbon-free fuel for both existing and new gas turbines.

As part of the MoU, both parties will further define a technology roadmap to develop gas turbine technologies by 2030 that will enable GE’s 6F.03, 7F and 9F (pictured) gas turbines to fire up to 100% ammonia in a ‘safe and commercially competitive manner’, with potential implementation across additional gas turbines in future.

Scott Strazik, CEO of GE Vernova, said GE will bring its extensive experience and expertise in engineering and manufacturing gas turbine combustors and balance of plant systems.
