"L&T Successfully Commissions First Indigenous Hydrogen Electrolyser at Hazira"

Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has achieved a groundbreaking feat in the realm of clean energy by commissioning its inaugural domestically manufactured electrolyser at the Green Hydrogen Plant situated in the A M Naik Heavy Engineering Complex at Hazira, Gujarat. This significant achievement heralds the entry of L&T Electrolysers Limited into the domestic electrolyser manufacturing arena, underscoring the company's unwavering commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions.

With a rated power capacity of 1 MW (expandable to 2 MW), the electrolyser can generate 200 Nm3/Hr of hydrogen. It is equipped with two stacks and an Electrolyser Processing Unit (EPU) ML-400, meticulously crafted and assembled indigenously to adhere to the latest international standards, promising exceptional flexibility and thermal stability. Over the coming weeks, the electrolyser will undergo stringent testing to optimize its performance, paving the way for full-scale electrolyser manufacturing.

L&T Electrolysers Limited, a recently established entity of L&T, focuses on manufacturing pressurized alkaline electrolysers utilizing technology from McPhy Energy, France. The company spearheaded the entire value chain, from engineering to manufacturing, in collaboration with Indian vendors and suppliers, setting a high bar for the "Make in India" initiative. Leveraging its upcoming giga-scale facility in Hazira, L&T Electrolysers aims to meet the surging demand for green hydrogen, enhancing product localization through an augmented local supply chain and automation to ensure cost-competitiveness.

Commenting on the milestone, Mr. Subramanian Sarma, Whole-time Director & Sr EVP (Energy), L&T, emphasized, "The indigenously manufactured electrolyser represents a transformative leap towards clean energy, positioning us to lead not only in the domestic market but also globally. This advancement significantly bolsters our offerings across the value chain, showcasing L&T as a global force in the clean energy space."

Echoing this sentiment, Mr. Derek M Shah, Sr VP & Head - Green Energy Business, L&T, highlighted, "Our commitment to localization in this project extends beyond mere cost-efficiency. It empowers the Indian supply chain, creates exciting opportunities for skilled professionals, and perfectly aligns with the vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat."

Under the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) of the National Green Hydrogen Mission, L&T Electrolysers has secured a substantial 300 MW/annum capacity allocation. This allocation underscores the company's potential to emerge as a pivotal player in electrolyser manufacturing, as part of the Government of India's Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) initiative, implemented by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI).
