INNIO Sustainable Energy Solutions
INNIO is ready for the age of hydrogen! With its potential as a CO2-free fuel source and its ability to be stored, hydrogen (H2) is an important part of the energy transition. INNIO already has 50 years of experience in converting alternative fuels into power—and more than 8,500 of our Jenbacher gas engines are operating on climate-neutral gases right now.

3 ways to use hydrogen with Jenbacher gas engines:
H2 in the pipeline gas
As of 2022, Jenbacher gas engines can be offered with a Ready for H2 option, capable of running with up to 25% (volume) of hydrogen in the pipeline gas. As hydrogen becomes more readily available in the future, all Ready for H2 new units and most of the currently installed Jenbacher natural gas-fueled engines can be converted to operate on 100% hydrogen. The type 4 engines are already available today to run on 100% hydrogen.
H2 locally admixed
to natural gas fuel
Up to 60% (volume) hydrogen content can be admixed to natural gas with special versions of Type 3, Type 4 and Type 6 engines. The type 4 engines are already available today as dual-gas-fuel solutions capable of running on 100% natural gas, 100% hydrogen or mixtures of natural gas and hydrogen.
100% H2 as gas
Jenbacher Type 4 gas engines are also available as pure H2 engines that operate only on hydrogen and are CO2-free.TECHNICAL DETAILS
