Ebara develops world’s first liquid hydrogen booster pump

Ebara Corporation, a Japanese manufacturer of environmental and industrial machinery, has developed what it claims to be the world’s first liquid hydrogen booster pump for hydrogen-fired power generation. The company plans to launch its newly developed product to the market later this year.

In thermal power generation, a liquid hydrogen booster pump is required to supply hydrogen from the storage tank to the hydrogen gas turbine. Ebara began with product development in 2019, as part of a project funded by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). Using this liquid hydrogen prototype pump, the company, in October 2022, conducted a test with liquid hydrogen at -253°C at the JAXA Noshiro Experimental Station. Favorable results led to designing a large flow rate booster pump.
