Greek gas transmission awards hydrogen-ready compression contract to Baker Hughes

March 31, 2022
TERNA has awarded Baker Hughes a contract to supply gas turbines and compressors that can run on a blend of natural gas and hydrogen for a new compression station of the Greek Natural Gas Transmission System.

TERNA, the construction arm of GEK TERNA Group, has awarded Baker Hughes a contract to supply gas turbines and compressors that can run on a blend of natural gas and hydrogen for a new compression station of the Greek Natural Gas Transmission System. The compression station will serve domestic gas supply in Greece.

Baker Hughes will provide three compression trains which will include a total of three NovaLT12 hydrogen-ready gas turbines and three Pneumatic Components Ltd. compressors, designed to support the transport of as much as 10% hydrogen. TERNA expects the station to enter operation in 2024 and directly support the European Union’s hydrogen strategy goals to accelerate development of clean hydrogen and ensure its role as a cornerstone of a climate-neutral energy system by 2050.

NovaLT12 design allows for blends of 5-100% hydrogen.
