Sterling Generators, Tecnicas Reunidas to jointly develop electrolyzers for green hydrogen production


Sterling Generators announced that it has recently signed an agreement with Tecnicas Reunidas, S.A., a Spain-based engineering and construction company in the energy sector, for the joint development of a 1 MWe hydrogen electrolyzer. The electrolyzer is planned to be commissioned in the last quarter of 2024 and would thereafter be scaled up to 10 MW.

Sterling Generators is a part of India’s leading EPC provider Sterling and Wilson.

Hydrogen is a universal, light and highly reactive fuel. Electrolysis is the process of using electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. This reaction takes place in a unit called an Electrolyzer. In this process, an electrical current is used to separate hydrogen from oxygen in water. If the utilized electric current is derived from renewable energy, then hydrogen is produced without emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Electrolysis is therefore a promising option for carbon-free hydrogen production from renewable resources.

Sanjay Jadhav, CEO of Sterling Generators, said, “As a versatile energy carrier, green hydrogen holds the potential to strengthen India’s energy independence, resilience, and innovation, driving the transition towards a cleaner and greener future. This agreement will therefore strengthen India’s adoption of green hydrogen as a key component of its ambitious renewable energy targets. It will help transform India’s abundant solar and wind resources into a strategic advantage in green hydrogen production.”

Joaquín Pérez de Ayala, director – Energy Transition, Tecnicas Reunidas SA, added, “This agreement will help the Integration of green hydrogen into India’s energy landscape, while holding the potential to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors, such as heavy industry and transport. It will strengthen technical ties and knowledge sharing between India and Spain, while further stimulating innovation, economic development and paving the way for a greener future.”
