Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has concluded an agreement with Indonesia’s Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) to conduct joint research and development (R&D) of ammonia-fired power generation by gas turbine.

MHI and ITB have already been undertaking joint research on a variety of clean energy solutions to help Indonesia achieve decarbonisation. Following demonstration testing with MHI’s H-25 gas turbine, the R&D partners will work towards commercial application of ammonia-fired power generation in Indonesia.

The joint R&D on ammonia-fired power generation will be conducted using facilities at ITB, with three aims: to promote technology development between Japan and Indonesia; to foster technological and personnel exchanges with ITB’s educators and research team members and; to advance the adoption of clean energies in Indonesia.

ITB Vice Rector for Research and Innovation, Professor I Gede Wenten, says: ‘The energy transition plays an important role in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions, and in the long term, will affect the reduction of global warming or climate change. This research collaboration between ITB and MHI focuses on the use of ammonia in power generation, greater adoption of which will help reduce the use of coal.’
