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.
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.
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.
TIWAG, the state energy utility owned by the State of Tyrol, is tasked with providing a secure, sustainable, and integrated energy supply for Tyrol. The TIWAG Group supports the European and national energy goals and is a driving force behind the ecological transition in Tyrol’s power, gas, and heat supply. TINEXT – TIWAG Next Energy Solutions GmbH, the 100% subsidiary established in 2021, supports the energy transition in the fields of hydrogen, photovoltaics, renewable heat, and electromobility.
