Korean firms join forces to develop hydrogen turbines

Korean firms Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction and Korea Western Power Team have teamed up to develop hydrogen turbines using domestic technologies, they announced on July 28.

Doosan Heavy, which builds power plants, will develop hydrogen combustors and turbines, and secure technologies in order to mass-produce related components. Korean Western Power, meanwhile, will promote the use of this hydrogen equipment.

Doosan Heavy is currently developing demonstration small- and medium-sized turbines that can run on 100% hydrogen, which it said could be used at both new and existing power plants.  The two sides also agreed to "joint efforts to create a hydrogen ecosystem, helping small and medium-sized enterprises develop hydrogen turbine technologies and advance into domestic and overseas markets."
