Accelerating the hydrogen revolution
Decades of investment in hydrogen technology
We built our first hydrogen compressor in 1962, and in 2008, we built the first turbine in the world to run on 100% hydrogen for the Fusina Hydrogen Power Project in Italy.
Proven and available today – up to 100% hydrogen turbine
Our gas turbine technology is commercially available today for applications with various levels of blended fuel gas from 10% and up to 100%. Our technology can be integrated and adapted to work with existing gas infrastructure, making it easier to deploy.
Expanding our compression leadership to hydrogen technology
We are established leaders in compression technology and our High Pressure Ratio Compressors (HPRC) provide significant improvements in overall green H2 plant footprint, reliability, availability and weight.
World’s first hydrogen-blend turbine tested for gas pipeline infrastructure
Baker Hughes and Snam, Europe’s largest gas network operator successfully completed the testing for the operation of the world's first "hybrid" hydrogen turbine designed for a natural gas transportation infrastructure. The test paves the way to implement the adoption of hydrogen (up to 10%) blended with natural gas in the current infrastructure, thanks to Baker Hughes’ NovaLT12 gas turbine technology.
Learn more about our hydrogen technologies
More than 70 projects worldwide use Baker Hughes frame and aero turbines for various fuel mixtures with high H2 content. Our NovaLT™16 turbine can start-up and burn gas blends up to 100% hydrogen. Utilising Druck hydrogen compatible pressure sensors enables reliable performance and market leading accuracy.
With over 5,000 units installed worldwide since 1960, our compression milestone include revolutionizing large LNG in the 1990s, and we continue to evolve our technologies to take energy forward.
Our fully integrated solutions include motor, vessels, piping, supports and control panel. Our machines are designed for lower maintenance, operating and capital costs, while boosting the performance of any operation.
With proven cryogenic approaching -270oC and best-in-class efficiency, our turboexpanders cover the most demanding services in the hydrogen value chain - at the core of liquefaction cycles, and optimizing carbon footprint with energy-recovery solutions.
