In line with the UK’s commitment to integrate 2–5% hydrogen into the national natural gas transmission system by 2025, this guidance document is designed to assist power station operators in understanding and preparing for the introduction of hydrogen-natural gas blends and the subsequent impact on gas turbine operations.

Key Features of the Guide:

  • Offers an examination of the effects of hydrogen integration on gas turbine power stations.
  • Provides actionable recommendations for modifications to support hydrogen blends ranging from 2% to 100%.
  • Includes findings from a specialized workshop that addressed the influence of hydrogen on essential plant components.

The Guide Covers:

  • Regulatory Context: A thorough overview of the current and forthcoming legal considerations.
  • Characteristics of Hydrogen: An analysis of hydrogen’s properties.
  • Risk Management: Guidance on conducting risk assessments and establishing safety protocols.
  • Maintenance Considerations: Advice on maintaining operational efficiency with hydrogen blends.
  • Safety Measures: Strategies for ensuring process and occupational safety.
  • End-of-Life Planning: Information on decommissioning considerations for plants using hydrogen.
