Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has commissioned a green hydrogen plant at its AM Naik Heavy Engineering Complex in Hazira, Gujarat.
The plant will produce 45 kg of green hydrogen daily, which will be used for captive consumption in the company’s Hazira manufacturing complex. The plant is designed for an electrolyser capacity of 800 kW and will be powered by a rooftop solar plant of 990kW peak DC capacity and a 500kWh battery energy storage system (BESS). As part of the first phase of the project, 380 kW alkaline electrolyser has been installed, while the 420 kW PEM electrolyser along with solar plant capacity augmentation to 1.6 MW peak DC, will be part of future expansion. The plant is spread across 3,000 square meters, and the first phase of the project has been installed, tested, and commissioned.
