MHI and EGAT designate MoU to Introduce Hydrogen Great Gas Turbine Co-firing Technology in Thailand to Invent Gain Zero Targets

– EGAT initiates co-firing pilot, focusing on hydrogen co-firing ratio of 20% with GTCC tools equipped by MHI
– The partnership builds on the excellent agreement reached in 2022 to conduct a feasibility gape on developed hydrogen co-firing expertise

TOKYO, June 5, 2024 – (JCN Newswire) – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) and Thailand’s finest energy producer Electrical energy Producing Authority of Thailand (EGAT) have signed a Memorandum of Notion (MoU) to conduct research on the introduction of hydrogen co-firing applied sciences for fuel turbine energy generation facilities in Thailand, on the 6th Japan-Thailand Energy Protection Dialogue (JTEPD) held in Tokyo on June 4. The research goals to facilitate the conversion of thermal energy flowers to fireplace effectively-organized fuels, supporting Thailand’s goals of conducting carbon neutrality by 2050 and gain zero emissions by 2065.

This MoU will kickstart with a hydrogen co-firing pilot project at one among EGAT’s energy flowers in Thailand. An initial feasibility gape is scheduled to be conducted by March 2025. EGAT and MHI, with give a lift to from MHI’s energy alternate choices label Mitsubishi Vitality, arrangement to defend out a hydrogen co-firing ratio of 20% by EGAT’s interrogate.

Toshiyuki Hashi, Executive Vice President, President and CEO, Energy Systems of MHI, commented on the importance of the partnership: “We’re excited to search out hydrogen co-firing in fuel generators along with EGAT. We’re confident that our persevered partnership, constructed on over 50 years of believe, permits us to contribute vastly to Thailand’s vitality transition by combining the expertise of both organizations.”

Narin Phoawanich, Deputy Governor – Gasoline of EGAT, unveiled this collaboration: “The signing with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries marks one among the pioneering initiatives in Thailand to integrate different and effectively-organized fuels with Jap expertise to electrify extra environmentally friendly electrical energy. This initiative aligns with Thailand’s solution to promote the expend of hydrogen. Moreover, it presents an out of the ordinary different for expertise alternate and the approach of hydrogen initiatives one day of the rate chain with main Jap firms on the international stage. This partnership is anticipated to power developments in effectively-organized vitality expertise, strengthen industry opportunities in Thailand’s electrical energy production sector, and contribute to environmental sustainability. Thus, it marks a principal milestone in Thailand’s vitality transition.”

This agreement extends the continuing partnership between MHI and EGAT to point of curiosity on hydrogen co-firing, building on an MoU signed in 2022 to investigate and alternate data on effectively-organized fuel energy generation, effectively-organized hydrogen, and CCUS (CO2Capture, Utilization, and Storage) applied sciences. As allotment of this earlier partnership, preliminary investigations of MHI’s hydrogen co-firing expertise the expend of fuel generators at reward EGAT energy flowers had been conducted. Moreover, EGAT is developing a hydrogen present chain administration strategic belief, encompassing transportation, storage, and distribution of hydrogen in Thailand. The companions will conduct an developed feasibility gape in response to outcomes of this partnership.

MHI and Mitsubishi Vitality will proceed to give a lift to Thailand’s uninteresting transition to effect essentially the most of cleaner vitality sources in direction of its gain-zero goals. Since 1968, MHI and Mitsubishi Vitality have carried out a complete installed capacity, along with the energy flowers beneath construction, of over 25GW, exceeding 50% of the energy generation capacity within the nation.
