nergy has been given approval to build a 1.2 GW CCGT plant which will run on hydrogen gas. The Public Utility Commission of Texas approved Entergy’s proposal to build the Orange County Advanced Power Station, a 1,215 MW combined cycle plant that will be located near Bridge City, Texas, USA. Based in one of the largest industrial regions in the country, the plant would have the initial capability to use up to 30% hydrogen by volume along with natural gas to generate power. Mitsubishi Power, which is supplying two M501JAC gas turbines, says the plant would eventually work up to 100% hydrogen. Hydrogen produces zero carbon emissions when combusted as a fuel source for electric generation. Construction is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2023, with the plant in service by summer 2026.
