SJVN inaugurates multi-purpose green hydrogen project


SJVN Ltd has inaugurated India’s first multi-purpose (combined heat and power) green hydrogen pilot project at its 1.5 GW Nathpa Jhakri Hydro Power Station (NJHPS) in Jhakri, Himachal Pradesh. The green hydrogen produced from the project will be utilized to meet combustion fuel requirements of NJHPS’s high-velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) thermal spray coating facility for turbine underwater parts. In addition, it will be used to generate electricity through its 25 kW fuel cell.

The green hydrogen pilot project will produce 14 kg of green hydrogen daily during 8 hours of operation. The hydrogen produced will be stored at a pressure of 30 bars, in six storage tanks, with a total storage capacity of 12 cubic metre.

The project will produce hydrogen using alkaline electrolyzer of 20 Nm3/hour capacity, which would be powered by renewable energy supplied from SJVN’s 1.31 MW solar power plant in Wadhal, Shimla.
