Japan's MHPS wins US order for hydrogen-fired thermal power system

Mitsubishi affiliate paves way as world cuts reliance on fossil fuels

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems built this facility in Takasago, Hyogo Prefecture, to test the combustion of hydrogen-mixed fuel. 

TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has received an order for a next-generation thermal power generation facility, using a fuel mix of natural gas and hydrogen, from the Intermountain Power Agency, an independent power producer in the U.S. state of Utah.

The facility reduces emissions of carbon dioxide by 75% and 10% in comparison with conventional coal- and natural gas-fired power generation systems, respectively, according to an announcement last week by MHPS, which is jointly owned by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Hitachi.
