Maire Tecnimont awarded EPC contract for 10-MW green hydrogen plant in India

By Mary Page Bailey |

Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. (Milan, Italy) announced that its Indian subsidiary Tecnimont Private Limited (TCMPL), in collaboration with NextChem, has been awarded an EPC contract by Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL) to implement a 4.3-ton/day green-hydrogen production plant via a 10-megawatt PEM electrolysis unit to be located in Vijaipur (Madhya Pradesh), in Central India.

The contract’s overall value is confidential and in line for this type of projects. The project’s scope of work entails full engineering, procurement and construction up to commissioning, start-up of the plant and Performance Guarantee Test Run, while its completion is expected in 18 months from the letter of acceptance.  

GAIL is the largest state-owned natural gas processing company with diversified activities across the whole natural gas value chain.

Alessandro Bernini, appointed Chief Executive Officer of Maire Tecnimont Group, commented: “In line with its National Hydrogen Mission, this project represents an important milestone of India’s journey towards a hydrogen-based and carbon-neutral industry and economy, as well as a tangible confirmation of the steady growth of Maire Tecnimont’s Green Business. Blending green hydrogen into the gas network or using it as green feedstock to decarbonise the fertiliser and other hard-to-abate industrial processes are essential uses which are enabling the green hydrogen economy to accelerate and scale-up. With our historical presence in India, we are proud to concretely contribute to the country’s 2030 decarbonization targets”.
