H2 combustion system design and development
FLEX4H2 will develop and validate a safe, efficient and highly fuel-flexible combustion system capable of operating with any hydrogen concentration up to 100% H2, at H-Class operating temperatures, while still meeting emission targets without any use of diluents.
Validation and demonstration
The combustion system will be validated with up to 100% H2 at full gas turbine operating conditions. The full-size combustor prototype will undergo dedicated atmospheric and high-pressure testing up to Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 6.
The FLEX4H2 project will provide credible pathways for comprehensive exploitation of the project’s results and thereby providing the basis for a firm contribution to the EU Green Deal towards decarbonisation of the electric power sector by 2030 and beyond.
