Apr 4, 2024

Baker Hughes announced on April 3 that it has been chosen by the Italian energy infrastructure company Snam to supply turbines for compression that can operate on natural gas and gas blends containing up to 10% hydrogen. The company will be providing three NovaLT 12 gas turbine driven compressor trains for a new gas compressor station in Sulmona, Italy. This technology will help in the decarbonization of Snam’s Adriatic Line project.

The new gas compressor station in Sulmona is part of Snam’s efforts to decarbonize its gas network infrastructure. This project is in line with the company’s goal of reducing emissions and transitioning towards cleaner energy sources. The 425-kilometer long hydrogen-ready pipeline will allow for the transportation of energy supplies from various regions to northern Europe, including Azerbaijan, Africa, and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Ganesh Ramaswamy, the executive vice president of Industrial & Energy Technology at Baker Hughes, expressed excitement about the collaboration with Snam. He highlighted their joint efforts in developing innovative technology solutions for decarbonizing energy ecosystems and promoting the hydrogen economy. Ramaswamy emphasized the importance of supporting the transition to cleaner energy sources while ensuring affordability and security in energy supply.
