The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. and Obayashi Corporation announced successful technology verification, for the first time worldwide, of 100% hydrogen-fueled gas turbine operation with dry low NOx (nitrogen oxides) combustion technology. The key technology of this gas turbine is newly developed combustor component by Kawasaki, applying micro-mix combustion principle. Dry low NOx combustion technology improves the electrical efficiency comparing to the conventional combustion method: water injection, as well as reduction of NOx emissions.
Technology verification tests, supplying electricity and heat generated by the hydrogen-fueled gas turbine cogeneration system to nearby facilities in Kobe City's Port Island, started fall 2020. And hydrogen-based power generation operation stability with dry low NOx combustion technology, electrical efficiency improvement, and environmental load reduction effects will be investigated.
