Iran's engineering and energy giant, the Mapna Group, is manufacturing hydrogen-fueled gas turbines, which consume less gas to generate electricity and instead of hazardous emissions discharge water, the managing director said.
“We take hydrogen, which is a clean fuel, from renewable power plants, and use it in these types of turbines, which replace traditional turbines and increase  installed capacity of any power plant by 70 megawatts,” Abbas Aliabadi was quoted as saying by Bargh News website.
A gas turbine is the engine at the heart of a power plant that produces electric current. A gas turbine is a combustion engine that can convert natural gas or other liquid fuels to mechanical energy. This energy then drives a generator that produces electrical energy.
