Gensol, Matrix partnership wins EPC for NHPC’s green hydrogen mobility station in Kargil


Gensol Engineering Ltd, a renewable energy and electric mobility solution provider, has emerged as the lowest bidder for engineering, procurement and commissioning (EPC) of a groundbreaking green hydrogen-based mobility station in Kargil, Ladakh. The refueling station, being commissioned by National Hydroelectric Power Corp. Ltd (NHPC), will support the operation of hydrogen fuel cell-powered buses within the region.

Gensol secured this project by demonstrating its technocommercial competency in collaboration with Matrix Gas & Renewables Ltd (Matrix).

Gensol will develop a 500 kW grid-connected, ground-mounted solar power project to supply power to the hydrogen refueling station. Matrix, a natural gas aggregator and hydrogen infrastructure developer, will oversee the engineering, procurement, and commissioning of dual electrolysers, each with a capacity of 30 NM3/hour.

The scope of work includes the entire balance of plant EPC encompassing the green hydrogen system installation, storage, and dispensing facilities, in addition to the requisite civil and electrical infrastructure for the integrated solar and hydrogen operation in Ladakh. The project spans the complete green hydrogen supply chain.

Gensol stated the project will be built to produce green hydrogen with a purity of at least 99.97%. The project is slated for completion within 12 months from the award of the work order.

Both Gensol and Matrix are backed by the same promoters and plan to collaborate in the green hydrogen domain leveraging the skill sets of each other.

Ali Imran Naqvi, CEO-BD & Project Management, Gensol Engineering Ltd., commented, “Our collaboration with a state-operated entity such as NHPC bolsters Gensol’s stature and trustworthiness in the industry, creating avenues for additional opportunities and alliances in the green hydrogen sector. The NHPC project win is set to strengthen Gensol’s market position, elevate our technical capabilities, and pave the way for growth and collaboration in the renewable energy sector.”

Chirag Kotecha, Whole-time Director, Matrix Gas and Renewables Limited, stated, “The green hydrogen-based mobility station pilot project will establish the technical and commercial feasibility of green hydrogen. This initiative will pave the way for scaling up to larger projects and will contribute significantly to India’s energy security. Given the vast potential within the green hydrogen supply chain, Matrix Gas and Renewables is strategically poised to offer efficient and economically viable solutions across the diverse Indian market.
