Amara Raja Power Systems will set up the first such green hydrogen fueling station in the country at Leh, Ladakh for the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC).

The Amara Raja Group unit said the pilot project will produce a minimum of 80 kg/day of 99.97% pure hydrogen, which will be compressed, stored and distributed. NTPC, which has awarded the contract, plans to run five hydrogen fuel cell buses in the region.

On successful completion, the project will usher in an era of emission-free transport in and around Leh and will place India in a select group of countries to be a leader in the green mobility space.

Green hydrogen will be produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen using an electrolysis process powered by electricity generated by renewable energy sources. The hydrogen thus produced will not leave any carbon footprint. Amara Raja Power Systems on Monday said the project will be set up in the extreme conditions of Leh – at an altitude of 3,600 meters above sea level with a temperature variation of minus 14 degrees to 20 degrees Celsius.

A part of the National Hydrogen Energy Mission, it will be a precursor to large-scale green hydrogen mobility and storage projects and will be useful for the study and deployment of fuel stations across the country.

Vikramaditya Gaurineni, Executive Director, Amara Raja said, “We have been in the power systems and energy storage business for over three decades… NTPC is honored to continue to serve as a reliable contractor.”

Noting that the challenging project will confirm the group’s EPC expertise, Dwarakanadha Reddy, Business Head, EPC Division, said, “We are excited to be the first to enter the green hydrogen infrastructure space.”
