Long Ridge Energy Terminal, located in Hannibal, Ohio, has announced plans to transition its 485 megawatt (MW) combined cycle power plant – currently under construction – to run on green hydrogen. With commercial operations planned for November 2021, Long Ridge will be the first purpose-built hydrogen-burning power plant in the United States and the first worldwide to blend hydrogen in a GE H-class gas turbine
In collaboration with New Fortress Energy (NFE) and GE, Long Ridge intends to begin running the plant on a blend of hydrogen and natural gas as early as this year, and to transition the plant to be capable of burning 100% green hydrogen over the next decade.
The plant employs a GE 7HA.02 combustion turbine capable of burning 15-20% hydrogen by volume in the gas stream initially, with the capability to move to 100% hydrogen over time.
Long Ridge has engaged Black & Veatch to assist with developing the plans, while Scott Strazik, CEO of GE Gas Power described GE as “the OEM with the most fleet experience in using alternative low heating value fuels including hydrogen”.
