L&T to set renewable energy infrastructure for green hydrogen plant at NEOM

Larsen & Toubro’s (L&T) power transmission and distribution business has accomplished significant milestones for the power elements and grid packages of a green hydrogen plant, which is being developed by NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) at a total investment of USD 8.4 billion.

NGHC, located at Oxagon in Saudi Arabia’s NEOM region, is an equal joint venture among ACWA Power, Air Products, and NEOM. L&T has received the nod to establish the renewable energy generation, storage and grid infrastructure from Air Products. The value of the packages awarded to L&T aggregate to USD 2.78 billion. Under these contracts, L&T will engineer, procure, and construct a 2.2 GWac photovoltaic (PV)solar plant,1.65 GW wind generation balance of plant and a 400 MWh battery energy storage system under the power elements package. It will also construct three 380 kV switching stations, 306 km of 380 kV overhead lines and underground cables required to the Kingdom’s grid network. The scope also includes the energy power monitoring system for the complete network.
