GE and IHI to develop gas turbines that can operate on 100% ammonia

GE Gas Power signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IHI Corporation (IHI), a leading heavy industry manufacturer based in Japan, to develop jointly ammonia combustion technologies for heavy duty gas turbines to generate electricity with reduced or near zero CO₂ emissions. The collaboration aligns with the companies’ commitment to support the global transition towards a lower-carbon future in the power generation sector.

The MoU marks a significant milestone following the announcement in June 2021 of the first MoU between GE and IHI to carry out an economic assessment for the use of ammonia as a carbon-free fuel for both existing and new gas turbines.

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 in a safe and commercially competitive manner, with potential implementation across additional gas turbines in the future.
