Mitsubishi and DT Midstream to develop hydrogen infrastructure in the US
The partnership aims to produce clean and affordable hydrogen widely available for power.
DT Midstream, Inc. (a natural gas pipeline and storage provider) and Mitsubishi Power Americas, Inc. (a provider of power generation and energy storage solutions) have inked a strategic joint development agreement (JDA) to advance clean hydrogen energy development projects across the US.
The partners will identify, develop and deploy projects that integrate Mitsubishi Power’s power generation and hydrogen technologies with DT Midstream’s energy infrastructure development and operational expertise to decarbonise utility, transportation and industrial sectors.
The agreement focuses on the production, storage, transportation and use of hydrogen and other commodities. Opportunities include offering hydrogen in liquefied or compressed form for multiple applications such as power generation and transport and steelmaking, refining, and fertiliser manufacturing.
The collaboration will employ Mitsubishi Power’s Hydaptive™ hydrogen package, which integrates renewable power, gas turbines, hydrogen and other energy storage technologies. Mitsubishi Power has previously announced clean energy hubs under development in Utah and North Dakota.
DT Midstream will provide gas delivery experience and leverage assets such as interstate and intrastate pipelines, gathering systems and storage systems. It has around 1,200 miles of transportation pipelines and more than 1,000 miles of gathering lines linking supply to significant demand markets.
David Hunt, VP at Mitsubishi Power Americas, said, “This collaboration will add to the ‘hub and spoke’ hydrogen infrastructure we have been creating with partnerships throughout North America.”
David Slater, CEO of DT Midstream, commented, “As the demand increases for low carbon energy such as hydrogen, we have an opportunity working with Mitsubishi Power to apply our natural gas infrastructure development expertise to hydrogen projects.”
