Technip Energies wins contract for PEM H2 plant by NTPC

Technip Energies has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract by NTPC for its proton exchange membrane (PEM) based hydrogen generation plant project at Vindhyachal, Madhya Pradesh, India.

The EPCC contract covers the delivery of a 5 MW hydrogen generation plant using PEM electrolysis technology at a super thermal power station. This project is suited for a large scale green hydrogen production facility as power to electrolyzer can be replaced with renewable electricity in the future.

NTPC is setting up this plant along with two other units – the first, a CO2 capture facility that captures CO2 from flue gas stream of the coal fired power plant and the second being a Methanol unit that uses the captured CO2 and the Hydrogen through PEM electrolyzer being supplied by Technip Energies to convert it into green methanol.
