NTPC and Siemens Limited sign MoU for demonstrating hydrogen co-firing in Faridabad gas power plant

NTPC Limited and Siemens Limited have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to demonstrate the feasibility of hydrogen co-firing blended with natural gas in Siemens V94.2 gas turbines installed at NTPC Faridabad gas power plant.

The total installed capacity of the Faridabad gas power plant is 432 MW with two V94.2 gas turbines operating in combined cycle mode. Under this MoU, both companies will collaborate to study the feasibility of introducing hydrogen co-firing in the Faridabad gas power plant. Based on the feasibility studies, a pilot project for 5 per cent (by volume) hydrogen co-firing may be implemented for demonstrating the capability and the hydrogen required for the project will be arranged by NTPC.
