KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 19 -- INNIO announced Hyosung Heavy Industries (Hyosung) has selected INNIO Jenbacher ‘Ready for Hydrogen’ engine technology for the first pilot power plant project in APAC that will be fuelled by 100 per cent hydrogen.

The pilot hydrogen power plant will be built at the Hyosung Chemical Yongyeon Plant in Ulsan, South Korea, setting a benchmark by becoming the first 100 per cent hydrogen power plant to be operated in the region.

It will run on hydrogen produced as a byproduct at the chemical plant that is normally sold off to an industrial gas company.

The project is expected to achieve commercial operation in 3Q 2022 and complete the demonstration by end of 2022.

In a statement, INNIO president and CEO, Olaf Berlien said: “INNIO has based its strategy on hydrogen becoming a driver of the energy transition, as it is uniquely positioned to shape a low- through no-carbon energy sector.

“INNIO launched its ‘Ready for Hydrogen’ portfolio to meet customers’ demands for sustainable solutions, such as at Hyosung, to establish hydrogen-based power generation. We are pleased to be their hydrogen engine technology partner of choice and to establish the first 100 per cent hydrogen power plant in APAC.”

Meanwhile, Hyosung General Manager Park Jeong-ha said: “Hyosung is striving to improve its impact on climate change by embracing the global energy transition. We have joined forces with INNIO to support our efforts to reduce carbon emissions while exploring commercial and sustainable opportunities related with our hydrogen byproduct production.”

As a shaper of a low-carbon economy, INNIO is preparing for a secure, affordable, and climate-neutral energy future for everyone. The pilot power plant using INNIO Jenbacher technology, will be the second power plant in the 1-MW range that can be fuelled with 100 per cent hydrogen.
