GAIL to build 4.5 tpd green hydrogen plant
India’s largest state-owned natural gas company is looking to buy a 10 MW electrolyzer to produce 4.5 tons of green hydrogen daily.
Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL), India’s largest state-owned natural gas company, wants to build the country’s largest green hydrogen plant in the next 12-14 months.
As written in an article by Millennium Post then re-published by the natural gas corporation, Gail aims to buy a 10 MW electrolyzer to produce 4.5 tons of green hydrogen daily. Gail, which has already launched a global tender, is looking into a couple of different potential sites for the plant, including one at Vijaipur, in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
The electrolyzer will be based on proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology.
Earlier this year, IndianOil (Indian Oil Corporation Limited) announced its plans to build India’s first green hydrogen plant at its Mathura refinery in the Indian State of Uttar Pradesh. The project will strengthen the clean energy offerings of the state-run oil and gas major that has already been pursuing hydrogen fuel cell, hydrogen-enriched hydrogen-enriched compressed natural gas (H-CNG) and solar.
IndianOil plans to wheel wind power from its Rajasthan project to the Mathura refinery to produce green hydrogen from water electrolysis.
