Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. has announced that its Indian subsidiary, Tecnimont Private Ltd (TCMPL), in collaboration with NextChem, has been awarded an EPC contract by Gas Authority of India Ltd (GAIL) to implement a 4.3 tpd green hydrogen production plant via a 10 MW PEM electrolysis unit to be located in Vijaipur, Central India.
The contract’s overall value is confidential and in line for this type of project. The project’s scope of work entails full engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) up to commissioning, start-up of the plant, and a Performance Guarantee Test Run, while its completion is expected in 18 months from the letter of acceptance.
GAIL is the largest state-owned natural gas processing company with diversified activities across the whole natural gas value chain.
