L&T commissions indigenously built hydrogen electrolyzer at Hazira


Larsen & Toubro (L&T) has commissioned its first indigenously manufactured electrolyzer at the green hydrogen plant of the AM Naik Heavy Engineering Complex in Hazira, Gujarat. Featuring a rated power capacity of 1 MW (expandable to 2 MW), the electrolyzer can produce 200 Nm3/hour of hydrogen.

L&T stated the electrolyzer is equipped with two stacks and an Electrolyzer Processing Unit (EPU) ML400, which is indigenously manufactured and assembled, adhering to the latest international standards. The electrolyzer is claimed to offer exceptional flexibility and thermal stability. It will put to rigorous testing in the coming weeks to optimize its performance, and in turn, paving the way for full-fledged manufacturing of electrolyzers.

L&T Electrolysers Ltd, a newly incorporated entity of L&T, is setting up a pressurized alkaline electrolyzer manufacturing facility with a capacity of 1 GW per annum. It will manufacture electrolyzers at this facility under a technology license from McPhy Energy, France.

The company has developed the complete value chain from engineering to manufacturing, in collaboration with Indian vendors and suppliers. It plans to leverage its upcoming giga-scale facility in Hazira to meet the growing demand for green hydrogen, maximizing product localization through enhanced local supply chain, and automation for cost-competitiveness.

L&T Electrolysers has been allocated 300 MW/annum electrolyzer capacity under the Production Linked Incentive (PLI) of the National Green Hydrogen Mission, launched by Government of India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and implemented by the Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI).
