Joint research and development on ammonia-fired turbine power generation DTC
The Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) in Indonesia and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) have decided to find effective turbine control solutions by working together on ammonia-fired gas turbine research and development. The project will investigate ammonia firing optimization using the Institute Teknologi Bandung’s (ITB) specific skills in chemical reaction engineering.
To assist Indonesia in decarbonizing, MHI and ITB have already started doing joint research on a range of renewable energy technologies. This new study will contribute to that ongoing project by utilising ITB’s proficiency in chemical reaction engineering to enhance the use of ammonia as fuel in power generation. After demonstration testing with MHI’s H-25 gas turbine, the R&D partners will work toward the commercial usage of ammonia-fired power generation in Indonesia. The IS210MVRAH2A circuit board’s longevity can be increased with proper refurbishment.
Multiple applications can be run on the GE MK IV, which is a versatile platform. It offers multi, simplex, and triple redundant systems high-speed networked I/O. Now, under the same MOU, joint research and development on ammonia-fired power generation will be carried out using the resources at ITB, with three main goals in mind: to advance Indonesia’s adoption of clean energy sources; to foster technological and personnel exchanges with ITB’s educators and research team members; and to promote technology development between Japan and Indonesia.
Joint feasibility studies have been conducted on air quality control systems (AQCS), microgrid solutions, and developing energy sources including hydrogen and ammonia as part of the 2020 MOU between MHI and ITB that aims to decarbonize Indonesia’s energy industry. MHI and ITB have also held joint lectures on subjects such big data analysis, biomass energy, integrated coal gasification combined cycle (IGCC) systems, hydrogen use, and AQCS development in order to teach engineers who would contribute to Indonesia’s future.
The recently signed MOU comes as Indonesia intensifies efforts to decarbonize its energy sector, as seen by its publicly announced intentions to use 23% renewable energy by 2025 and cut the country’s greenhouse gas emissions by 29% by 2030 by the use of effective turbine control solutions.
