The company's plan is to retrofit its 40 MW H-25 Series natural gas turbines and install a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit and a tailored combustor to mitigate the NOx emissions from ammonia combustion. Ammonia is shaping up to be one of the leading carriers for hydrogen, and the ability to burn it directly in a turbine, without first having to extract the hydrogen from it, makes this technology an interesting proposition. However, there is an efficiency penalty with ammonia combustion due to the NOx control measures that will be required. Clients with established MW-level ammonia infrastructure should monitor this development very closely.
