Chevron and Caterpillar-owned Solar Turbines are working together to adapt a low-emissions turbine engine partially fueled by hydrogen. Blending hydrogen with traditional fuels to power the engine could help reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.
Results from the collaboration could inform the potential of lower carbon turbine intensity operations in the future.
“We believe this collaboration offers a promising opportunity to further develop hydrogen for commercial gas turbine applications,” said Stuart Quay, Solar Turbines’ manager of strategic growth. “Solar’s commitment to provide reliable power solutions while lowering greenhouse gas emissions makes us a good fit to work with Chevron on this project.”
