Baker Hughes on April 3 said it has been selected by Italy-based energy infrastructure company Snam to provide turbines for compression that can run completely on natural gas and gas blends of up to 10% hydrogen.

The energy technology company will provide three of its NovaLT 12 gas turbine driven compressor trains for a new gas compressor station in Sulmona, Italy. The technology helps decarbonize gas network infrastructure of Snam’s Adriatic Line project. The 425-km long, hydrogen-ready pipeline will enable the transport of energy supplies from Azerbaijan, Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean region to northern Europe, Baker Hughes said in a news release.

“Together, we are innovating and delivering critical world-firsts for the decarbonization of gas networks,” said Ganesh Ramaswamy, executive vice president of Industrial & Energy Technology at Baker Hughes. “Our work with customers and partners is part of our commitment to developing innovative technology solutions, such as the NovaLT12, that enable the decarbonization of energy ecosystems and the creation of the hydrogen economy while continuing to support the need for an affordable and secure energy supply.”
