The future of hydrogen with MAN gas engines

Hydrogen is increasingly important for decarbonization. But it will be several years before it is available in sufficient quantities, can be transported cost-effectively, and can be used across the board in industry, transport, and power generation.
We regard SNG as a transition fuel, since it is easy to adapt existing equipment to use synthetic gas. MAN gas engines are already using power-to-X fuels such as SNG to operate totally climate-neutrally. Our gas engines are commonly used in power stations and are already 'H2-ready'.

H2-ready: MAN Gas Engines Enable Hydrogen Use in Power Plants

MAN Energy Solutions has announced that its gas-powered, four-stroke engines are 'H2-ready' and operable in stationary mode with a hydrogen content of up to 25% by volume in a gas-fuel mix. As such, within the power-plant segment, the company’s MAN 35/44G TS, 51/60G and 51/60G TS gas engines are now designated as H2-ready and capable of exploiting hydrogen to further reduce CO2 emissions. This hydrogen-combusting capability enables MAN gas engines to meet Level B requirements of the European Engine Power Plants Association’s (EUGINE) H2-readiness standard. With Power-to-X fuels such as synthetic natural gas (SNG), MAN engines can already be operated in a completely climate-neutral way.

“Flexible and decentralised, gas-fired power plants will play a decisive role for a secure power-supply on the pathway towards 100% renewable energy,” said Dr Gunnar Stiesch, Head of Engineering Engines at MAN Energy Solutions. “The CO2 emissions of these power plants can be further reduced by mixing the fuel gas with hydrogen. Green hydrogen is still a scarce commodity and therefore our engines offer operators full flexibility within the scope of the admixture possible in the existing gas network. At the same time, we are working on future concepts that will enable hydrogen fuelling of up to 100% as soon as it becomes available in large quantities.”

The adaptive combustion control (ACC) of the MAN engines reacts fully automatically to varying hydrogen contents in the natural gas and enables operation without loss of efficiency, even with fluctuating H2 content. Gas engines already in operation can be retrofitted for hydrogen blend-in by upgrading the automation and adding additional ACC sensors.

“We are focusing our R&D efforts on offering our customers maximum operational flexibility and future-proofness,” said Stiesch. “The development of a hydrogen economy will take several years, during which time the infrastructure will be upgraded and the production of green hydrogen ramped up. In the German natural-gas grid, for example, a maximum admixture of up to 10% is currently possible; in the future, 20% will be feasible. With our engines, power-plant operators are optimally positioned for this situation.”
