On to net zero: INNIO is ramping up its green hydrogen commitment in Jenbach

INNIO is taking our commitment to net zero to a whole new level with an agreement that TIWAG subsidiary TINEXT will supply our primary operations in Jenbach with green hydrogen (H2) by 2025. At the same time, excess power and heat will be fed into the local power grid and district heating network. Green hydrogen, along with other initiatives, should significantly reduce the carbon footprint at the Jenbacher site.

  • On to net zero: INNIO is ramping up its green hydrogen commitment in Jenbach

The hydrogen agreement with TIWAG and TINEXT is another milestone on our path to net zero at our site in Jenbach. We have committed to reducing emissions from our production sites around the world by up to 50% by 2030. The products of the future are being developed here in our INNIO360 Energy Lab, where we demonstrate how the energy transition works.

Dr. Olaf Berlien, President and CEO of INNIO

As part of the joint project, INNIO will install an electrolysis unit on the premises of TIWAG’s Achensee power plant that will convert green electricity into green hydrogen. In turn, TINEXT will construct the compression and storage terminals.

And, once enough green hydrogen is available, additional areas of application are planned at the Jenbacher site, such as supplying a plant gas station for refueling local logistics companies’ vehicles.

Hydrogen, a key component in the energy transition, will be transported via pipeline from TINEXT to INNIO’s main operations in Jenbach, where it will primarily be used for hydrogen engine test runs.

Using green hydrogen to generate power is an important step on INNIO’s journey to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the site in Jenbach. Along with the use of a photovoltaic system, hydropower plant, battery storage, storage water heater (power-to-heat), and electromobility, this will make an important contribution to implementing our broad-ranging sustainability strategy.

Martin Mühlbacher, vice president and site manager in Jenbach

The availability of green hydrogen is an important prerequisite for the sustainable, economic, and timely implementation of INNIO’s hydrogen strategy. The company began offering all new Jenbacher engines with a “Ready for H2” option this year.

This pioneering hydrogen project is a central element of Tyrol’s energy strategy of phasing out the use of fossil fuels. With this agreement, INNIO and TIWAG are showing how the transition to an energy-autonomous and climate-neutral energy supply for industrial companies can be realized. TIWAG has been using hydropower to generate green electricity in Jenbach for almost 100 years. As of this summer, this is supported by a large photovoltaic system. It is all the more gratifying that our subsidiary TINEXT is now supplying green hydrogen for our customer and partner INNIO at this location, which has a long tradition in power generation.
