Mitsubishi Power, a unit of Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, has signed a full turnkey contract with Egypt’s Alexandria National Refining & Petrochemicals Company (ANRPC) to provide hydrogen fuel conversion solutions, it said on June 15.

The solutions will be installed at the ARNPC refinery in Alexandria, which provides 30% of Egypt’s gasoline supply for domestic consumption.

Under the terms of the contract, Mitsubishi Power will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of fuel conversion solutions for the existing 100 metric ton/hour boiler, enabling it to fire up to 100% hydrogen by the end of 2023. This includes the installation of hydrogen burner technology and control solutions to ensure efficient and safe operations.

“We are thrilled to partner with world technology leader Mitsubishi Power on innovative fuel conversion solutions that will help us to achieve our commercial goals while reducing our carbon footprint by 22,000 tons annually,” ANRPC CEO Salah Gaber said.

Mitsubishi Power said its hydrogen firing technology enables thermal power systems owners to decarbonize their existing plants with minimal modifications.
