Zero Carbon Fuel Air Products, Baker Hughes Partner for Global Hydrogen Developments
With an aim to reduce production costs and promote hydrogen as a zero-carbon fuel, Air Products has entered into an agreement with Baker Hughes to develop next generation hydrogen compression. Under the terms of the contract, Baker Hughes will also supply Air Products with advanced hydrogen compression and gas turbine technology for its projects across the globe.
London/UK – Air Products and Baker Hughes have announced a strategic global collaboration to develop next generation hydrogen compression to lower the cost of production and accelerate the adoption of hydrogen as a zero-carbon fuel. As part of the collaboration, Baker Hughes will provide Air Products with advanced hydrogen compression and gas turbine technology for global projects, including NovaLT16 turbines for Air Products’ net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and advanced compression technology for the Neom carbon-free hydrogen project in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Our transformative hydrogen compression and gas turbine technology lowers the overall production cost for new energy frontiers such as hydrogen and is a strategic enabler for key projects
“Air Products chose Baker Hughes for its leading-edge compression and gas turbine offerings and robust hydrogen experience,” said Dr. Samir J. Serhan, chief operation officer, Air Products. “This advanced technology is another key step toward achieving economically viable blue and green hydrogen and net-zero targets.”
“Our transformative hydrogen compression and gas turbine technology lowers the overall production cost for new energy frontiers such as hydrogen and is a strategic enabler for key projects,” said Rod Christie, executive vice president of Turbomachinery & Process Solutions at Baker Hughes. “Our proven technology is helping to accelerate the hydrogen economy, and our collaboration with Air Products will be critical for a net-zero future.”
