The exploration and production major said that it has commissioned the plant in a record time of 3 months.
The plant was inaugurated by Sushil Chandra Mishra, Chairman & Managing Director of Oil India Ltd, in the presence of Harish Madhav, Director (Finance) and Prasanta Borkakoty, Resident Chief Executive of the company.
Further, the newly commissioned plant produces green hydrogen from the electricity generated by the existing 500kW Solar plant using a 100 kW Anion Exchange Membrane (AEM) Electrolyser array.
The company said that the AEM technology has been used for the first time in the country.
Commenting on commissioning the hydrogen project, Sushil Chandra Mishra said that the company has taken an important step towards fulfilling the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister for an Energy-Independent India. This plant is expected to increase its production of green hydrogen from 10 kg per day to 30 kg per day in the future. The company has initiated a detailed study in collaboration with IIT Guwahati on the blending of Green Hydrogen with Natural Gas and its effect on the existing infrastructure of OIL. The company also plans to study use cases for commercial applications of the blended fuel.
