Hydrogen Park
Location: VE
Operator: Enel SpA
Configuration: 12-MW PGT10 gas turbine CHP
Operation: 2010
Fuel: hydrogen
T/G supplier: Nuovo Pignone
Quick facts: On 12 July 2010, Enel CEO Fulvio Conti and local dignitaries inaugurated the world’s first industrial-scale, hydrogen-fueled power station at Fusina. Heat from the gas turbine is recovered and sent to the nearby Andrea Palladio coal-fired plant to generate an additional 4 MW of electricity. The Hydrogen Park GT consumes 1.3mt/hr of hydrogen and required an overall construction investment of some €50mn. Hydrogen is secured from the petrochemical facility of Porto Marghera as a by-product of the manufacturing process. The Hydrogen Park consortium formed in 2003 at the initiative of the Venice Industrial Union with about
4mn in support from the Region of Veneto and the Ministry for the Environment.
