    Equinor, SSE Thermal to co-op in hydrogen production

    June 28, 2022 - Trend News Agency


      BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 28. Norway’s Equinor, an international energy company, and SSE Thermal, a thermal power stations operator, plan to make a transition to hydrogen, Trend reports via Equinor.

      For this, Equinor and SSE Thermal will acquire Triton Power company for a total of 341 million pounds.

      The purchase includes Saltend Power Station, a conventional combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT), with an installed capacity of 1.2 GW. The companies are now preparing the power plant to use up to 30 percent hydrogen from 2027, with an ambition to eventually increase to 100 percent hydrogen operation.

      “Contributing to flexible power supplies with low carbon emissions to support weather-dependent renewable energy is essential to ensure energy security through the energy transition,” Irene Rummelhoff, Equinor's executive vice president for Marketing, Midstream and Processing, said.

      “Flexible energy will be crucial as renewable energy scales up further over the coming years, providing important back-up and improving the security of supply. But the real gain will be how we contribute to decarbonization in the longer term, and we are particularly excited about the possibilities for hydrogen and carbon capture in Saltend. Together with Equinor, we will explore all avenues to decarbonize Saltend and create new opportunities for other businesses so that they can operate in a future with net-zero emissions,” Catherine Raw, CEO of SSE Thermal, added.
