Will be interesing to see if this is a start of a trend - NG plants being modified to allow ability to burn Hydrogen.

The power plant will also be the first worldwide to blend hydrogen in a GE H-class gas turbine. The plant utilizes a GE 7HA.02 combustion turbine, which can burn between 15-20% hydrogen by volume in the gas stream initially, with the capability to transition to 100% hydrogen over time. Long Ridge has engaged Black & Veatch to assist with developing plans for the plant integration for hydrogen blending and to ensure safe and reliable industrial practices, the company said.

Note: LADWP is also saying their InterMountain replacement plant will be capable of burning hydrogen.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is embarking on a groundbreaking hydrogen generation project. 

The public power utility plans to phase out the 1,800 MW, coal-fueled generation at the Intermountain Power Project (IPP), which it participates in with electric power cooperatives and other public power utilities in California, Nevada and Utah, and replace it with natural gas-fueled generation that would eventually be fueled entirely by hydrogen.  In addition to generation, the IPP also includes two large transmission systems that move power throughout the region and to Southern California
