In accordance with Baker Hughes, this blueprint is a principal a part of Adriatic Line, a Snam pipeline mission which entails the improvement of a 425-kilometer-long, hydrogen-bright pipeline to permit the transport of extra energy gives from Azerbaijan, Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean rating 22 situation to northern Europe.

The contract, which was awarded to Baker Hughes following a public soft, builds on an extended-standing collaboration between the 2 companies, Baker Hughes acknowledged, including that in 2020 the 2 parties fill been desirous about the testing of the “world’s first ‘hybrid’ hydrogen turbine designed for a gasoline network, and the set up of a NovaLT™12 turbine at Snam’s Istrana, Italy, location in November 2022.”

“The adoption of Baker Hughes NovaLT™12 mills, which present the answer to plug on 100% natural gasoline or hydrogen blends up to 10%, represents a serious milestone in decarbonizing the Italian gasoline network infrastructure and aligns with Snam’s technique to take care of up out carbon neutrality on notify emissions by 2040,” Baker Hughes acknowledged.

Ganesh Ramaswamy, Govt Vice President, Industrial & Vitality Technology at Baker Hughes, commented: “This milestone in our long-standing collaboration with Snam demonstrates that the energy transition requires actual partnership… Our work with clients and companions is a component of our commitment to constructing progressive technology solutions, such because the NovaLT™12, that allow the decarbonization of energy ecosystems and the introduction of the hydrogen economic system whereas continuing to reinforce the need for an cheap and stable energy offer.”

To remind, in January 2024, Baker Hughes shared an replace on a few of its provocative hydrogen initiatives, including a brand original hydrogen testing facility in Florence, Italy, and the finished manufacturing and testing of its NovaLT16 hydrogen mills for the Air Products Find-Zero Hydrogen Vitality Complex in Edmonton, Canada.
