KAWASAKI Gas Turbine Europe GmbH (KGE) is a subsidiary of KAWASAKI Heavy Industries Ltd. with headquarters in Bad Homburg v.d.H., near Frankfurt a.M. From Bad Homburg v.d.H. The entire European business is looked after and controlled from.
KGE offers its customers a complete and customized range of products and services from a single source. Competent and reliable: KGE plans, produces, installs and maintains gas turbine generator sets. Over 160 such gas turbine generator sets in the cogeneration process have already been installed in Europe and over 7,800 worldwide. The outputs range from 1,700 kWe to 30,000 kWe or from 3,700 kWth to 75,000 kWth.
Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. considers the whole supply chain for hydrogen application and has developed different technologies for each link of the supply chain. The chain ranges from hydrogen production, storage, land & over sea transport and utilization of hy-drogen via gas turbines, as the final link. Combined with the use of renewable energy sources for its production, hydrogen repre-sents a possible alternative gas turbine fuel within future low emission power generation. Due to the large difference in the physical properties of hydrogen compared to other fuels such as natural gas, well established gas turbine combustion systems cannot be directly applied for dry low-NOx (DLN) hydrogen combustion. Thus, the development of DLN com-bustion technologies is an essential and challenging task for the future of hydrogen fuelled gas turbines.
Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. has developed the so-called Micro-Mix-DLN combustion principle for hydrogen fuel to significantly reduce NOx emissions. The major advantages of this innovative combustion technology are the inherent safety against flash-back and the low NOx emissions due to a very short residence time of reactants in the hot flame region of the micro-flames.
The micro mix combustion technology has been already proven experimentally and tested with 100% hydrogen fuel operation at different energy density levels.
