Safety handling

The HyPowerGT project will address several safety aspects related to burning any blends of natural gas and hydrogen. These aspects will be analysed starting from the risk assessment performed on the DLE H2 gas turbine, supported by detailed numerical simulations of different scenarios involving the presence of hydrogen-air mixtures within the flow path of a fueled gas turbine during off-design transients. An assessment for retrofitting the DLE H2 gas turbines and a complementary risk analysis related to health, safety, and environment assessment will be performed. A safety management plan will be ultimately developed, with the aim of enabling operation of retrofitted GTs with up to 100% H2 and certifying the NovaLTTM16 DLE H2 product.
