Electricity Generating Public Company Limited or EGCO Group through its subsidiary EGCO Linden II has invested in Linden Topco, a company that operates the Linden gas-fired power cogeneration project in the United States. The operating company has concluded an agreement with Phillips 66, a major oil refiner in the United States to receive refinery produced fuel gas containing hydrogen.

The operating company will modify the existing gas turbine of Linden Unit 6 so that refinery produced fuel gas containing the hydrogen, supplied by Phillips 66’s Bayway Oil Refinery adjacent to the power plant, can be mixed and co-fired with natural gas. After completion of this modification in 2022, Linden Unit 6 will be capable of mixed combustion with up to 40% hydrogen, reducing CO2 emissions by as much as 10% of the regular annual CO2 emissions from Linden Unit 6.

Mr. Thepparat Theppitak EGCO Group’s President

Mr. Thepparat Theppitak, EGCO Group’s President, said, “Specialists in the power and fuels industry like our partners at Linden Topco from JERA Americas are working on advancements to make hydrogen a viable fuel option for power and transport. EGCO Group has also invested in the Gangdong fuel cell power plant in South Korea which uses hydrogen as its primary feedstock for power and heat generation. Through investments such as Linden Cogen and Gangdong, EGCO Group aims to accumulate technological know-how and experience that it can apply more broadly to its domestic and international projects in the future as the technology matures.”

“EGCO Group is in the forefront of Thailand’s plans to promote the use of hydrogen as a clean fuel for power generation. We are committed to promoting the adoption of cleaner fuels and the pursuit of excellence in new cutting-edge power generation technologies”, concluded Mr. Thepparat.
