Baker Hughes' Nova LT hybrid turbine creates a new energy future

PIPELINE TECHNOLOGY JOURNAL | Baker Hughes, global oil field service leader and Snam, Europe's largest gas transport group based in Italy, have successfully completed tests for a “hybrid” turbine, the Nova LT,  that will allow transportation pipelines to carry hydrogen along with natural gas, the Italian gas company said on Monday.

The tests are highly significant as they could plausibly usher in game-changing technology that will assist the European Union in meeting its climate neutrality goals by 2050.  The initiative follows the European Union’s Hydrogen Strategy launched on 8 July, which envisages the installation of at least 40 GW of renewable hydrogen by 2030 and ultimately climate neutrality by 2050.
