|Make and model||GE (Nuovo Pignone)|
|Nameplate capacity||16 MW|
Fusina hydrogen power station is a hydrogen-fueled power station located in Fusina, near Venice in the Veneto region of Italy. It is the first commercial-scale power station in the world that is fueled with pure hydrogen. The power station is operated by Enel.
The Fusina project was launched in 2004. Construction of the power station started in April 2008 and it became operational in August 2009. It was inaugurated on 12 July 2010. The plant is located adjacent to the Andrea Palladio Power Station. Fusina hydrogen power station has an installed capacity of 12 MW. An additional 4 MW could be generated in the Andrea Palladio Power Station through the reuse of steam produced by the hydrogen-fueled turbine. The power station is equipped by a General Electric combined-cycle gas engine.
