Tecnimont Private Ltd, the Indian subsidiary of Tecnimont (Integrated E&C Solutions), and NEXTCHEM have announced that the first green hydrogen production plant for the client GAIL Ltd was inaugurated at Vijaipur, Madhya Pradesh, India.

The project, awarded in May 2022 and implemented by Tecnimont Private Ltd in collaboration with NEXTCHEM, marks a significant step towards low-carbon energy solutions in India. The facility will produce 4.3 tpd of green hydrogen via 10 MW-based electrolysers, making the state-owned gas utility GAIL the first company to start megawatt-scale operations for the production of green hydrogen.

The GAIL Vijaipur plant aligns with India’s Hydrogen Mission of achieving at least 5 million tpy of green hydrogen production capacity by 2030. India aims to become energy independent by 2047 and to achieve net zero by 2070. Green hydrogen is considered a strategic enabler of the energy transition: in fact, it can be utilised for long-duration storage of renewable energy, replacement of fossil fuels in industry, clean transportation, and potentially also for decentralised power generation, aviation, and marine transport.

Vijaipur Green Hydrogen will be NEXTCHEM's reference plant to pursue additional energy transition prospects in India.

Alessandro Bernini, MAIRE Group CEO, commented: “We are extremely proud for this achievement, which best positions MAIRE in India for prospects in the energy transition space, having contributed to the implementation of the largest green hydrogen plant in the country. Our strong presence in India counting on over 3000 people, makes the group at the forefront in proposing sustainable solutions for the national industry."
