In today's dynamic and fast changing power generation market, gas turbine power plant operators face ongoing challenges in terms of operational flexibility and a continuous need for CO2 emission reductions. Ansaldo Energia provides unprecedented solutions for future proofing Customerers' assets in this changing regulatory and economic environment.
With subsidies and regulatory mandates driving the introduction of massive levels of renewable power generation into the marketplace and stressing the grid network, gas turbine power plants are being thrust into the additional role of following and backing up renewable's inherently volatile generation profile.
Conventional renewables are still far from guaranteeing a secure supply, which is why existing gas-fired plants are still bound to play a major role in the energy market as guarantors of grid reliability. Among all combustible gases, hydrogen stands out as an almost perfect combination of storability for long periods and reliability. Being able to burn hydrogen alone or in combination with other natural gases, and to do it safely and efficiently, could therefore make all the difference.
Ansaldo Energia's extensive portfolio includes a wide range of products and solutions in order to meet at best Customers' requirements.
Thanks to its technological platforms, Ansaldo Energia is able to burn the largest range of NG-H2 blended fuel mixture in gas turbines for new power plants or retrofit applications.
An additional benefit offered by our solutions is the capability to burn any variable mixture of natural gas and hydrogen up to the maximum values stated above, thus facing even an intermittent supply in the hydrogen distribution.
