ACME Group is in the process of commissioning the world’s first integrated green hydrogen and green ammonia plant in Bikaner, India
ACME Group, a renewable energy firm on Monday announced its partnership with the US-based KBR Technology for its green hydrogen and green ammonia project in Oman worth USD 3.5 billion.
KBR will provide technology licence, engineering, proprietary equipment, catalyst and commissioning services for a plant to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia under the contract, the company said in a statement.
This green hydrogen and green ammonia facility, aimed towards exporting green ammonia to Europe and Asia, will be the first project of this scale.
“We selected KBR Technology because of its high yields and the lowest energy consumption and look forward to successful project implementation”, Manoj K Upadhyay, founder and chairman of ACME Group, said in the statement.
To set up a large-scale facility to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia, ACME Group and the Oman Company for the Development of the Special Economic Zone at Duqm, in March 2021, had signed a memorandum of understanding. To produce 2,400TPD of green ammonia with an annual production of about 0.9 million tonnes, the plant will be an integrated facility using three gigawatt-peak (GWp) of solar and 0.5GWp of wind energy.
Recently, the ACME Group signed a land pact to set up one of the world’s largest green ammonia projects at the special economic zone at the port of Duqm in Oman. The agreement was signed with the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones, a government authority of Oman. Black & Veatch has been appointed as the environmental consultant and owner’s engineer for the project.
ACME Group is in the process of commissioning the world’s first integrated green hydrogen and green ammonia plant in Bikaner, India. Green hydrogen will be produced using five megawatt peak (MWp), expandable up to 10MWp, from the solar plant, which is an integral part of the project.
ACME Group has built a solar portfolio of six GWp. Of this, the company currently holds a portfolio of 5.25GWp, which includes 2.2GWp of operational capacity and another 3.05GWp is under construction. These are spread across 12 states in India.
