Ammonia Gas Turbines

GE and IHI developing 100% ammonia-capable combustion system

GE Gas Power is signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with IHI Corporation (IHI) to jointly develop ammonia combustion technologies for heavy duty gas turbines for power generation. Since June 2021, the companies have been assessing the feasibility of this project. As part of the MoU, both parties will further define a technology roadmap to develop gas turbine technologies by 2030 that will enable GE’s 6F.03, 7F and 9F gas turbines to fire up to 100% ammonia, with potential implementation across additional gas turbines in the future.
