INNIO announced the launch of its Ready for H2” portfolio that includes 100 per cent hydrogen-fueled Jenbacher H2-engines.

Jenbacher Type 4 gas engines – with an approximate output of 500 to 900 kilowatts (kW) – are available for operation with 100 per cent hydrogen or mixtures of natural gas and hydrogen.

As of 2022, all other INNIO Jenbacher gas engines will be offered with a “Ready for H2” option, capable of running with up to 25 per cent volume of hydrogen in pipeline gas and being able to be readily converted from natural gas to 100 per cent hydrogen operation.

“I am proud of INNIO’s announcement of the first ‘Ready for H2 product portfolio in the 200 kW – 10.4 MW power generation space. Our broad portfolio of innovative and fuel flexible Jenbacher gas engines – capable of operating on natural gas, carbon neutral biogas or hydrogen-rich fuels – are helping to pave the way to a greener energy future,” said Carlos Lange, President and CEO, INNIO. “Jenbacher gas engines running on natural gas today can be converted to H2 operation when hydrogen becomes more readily available. This means that customers who invest in Jenbacher natural gas engines today, are also investing for the future.”
