Air Products, Baker Hughes ink hydrogen pact

US LNG equipment specialist Air Products has joined forces with compatriot energy services firm Baker Hughes to work on hydrogen projects.

The two firms announced on Wednesday a strategic global collaboration to develop “next generation hydrogen compression to lower the cost of production and accelerate the adoption of hydrogen as a zero-carbon fuel.”

As part of the collaboration, Baker Hughes will provide Air Products with hydrogen compression but also gas turbine technology for global projects.

This includes NovaLT16 turbines for Air Products’ hydrogen energy complex in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and compression technology for the NEOM hydrogen project in Saudi Arabia, the statement said.

Baker Hughes developed its first hydrogen compressor in 1962 and today has more than 2,000 units operating around the globe.

In addition, the firm’s hydrogen portfolio also includes gas turbines that can burn methane gas and hydrogen blends.

On the other side, Air Products claims the company is the world’s largest hydrogen producer with extensive experience in project execution, plant operations and strength in the hydrogen supply chain.
