L&T Commissions First Indigenous Hydrogen Electrolyser at Hazira

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has successfully commissioned its inaugural indigenously manufactured electrolyser at the Green Hydrogen Plant located in the A M Naik Heavy Engineering Complex in Hazira, Gujarat. This achievement was announced by the company in an official statement released on Friday.

The newly operational electrolyser boasts a rated power capacity of 1 MW, with expandability to 2 MW, and is capable of producing 200 Nm3/Hr of hydrogen. Equipped with two stacks and an Electrolyser Processing Unit (EPU) ML-400, which is entirely manufactured and assembled domestically, the electrolyser complies with the latest international standards and offers exceptional flexibility and thermal stability. Following its commissioning, the electrolyser will undergo rigorous testing to optimize its performance, marking a significant step towards full-scale manufacturing of electrolysers.

This milestone represents L&T Electrolysers' inaugural venture into domestic electrolyser manufacturing, underscoring the company's steadfast commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions. L&T Electrolysers Ltd, a newly established entity within L&T, specializes in producing pressurized alkaline electrolysers utilizing technology from McPhy Energy, France.

Subramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director & Sr EVP (Energy) at L&T, emphasized the transformative potential of the domestically manufactured electrolyser, positioning L&T as a frontrunner not only in the domestic market but also on a global scale in the realm of clean energy. This advancement significantly enhances L&T's offerings across the clean energy value chain, solidifying its position as a key player in the clean energy sector.

L&T Electrolysers aims to leverage its forthcoming giga-scale facility in Hazira to meet the escalating demand for green hydrogen. The company plans to maximize product localization through an enhanced local supply chain and automation to ensure cost-competitiveness. As part of the National Green Hydrogen Mission, launched by India's Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and implemented by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), L&T Electrolysers has been allocated a significant 300 MW/annum capacity under the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme.
