Adani Total Gas plans for green hydrogen blending project in Ahmedabad
Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL) has announced a green hydrogen blending pilot project in Ahmedabad in the Indian state of Gujarat. The project will blend green hydrogen with natural gas for over 4,000 residential and commercial customers in the city.
The said project is expected to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2024-25, with hydrogen blending of up to 8 percent or more targeted depending on regulatory approvals, according to news reports.
Further, the pilot project will help ATGL assess the viability of green hydrogen in commercial applications and help the company to partner with other stakeholders in developing the emerging green hydrogen ecosystem in the country.
"We are fully committed towards building an environmentally sustainable operation and this project represents our ongoing dedication towards national infrastructure building for India to become energy independent by 2047", said Suresh Manglani, Executive Director and CEO of ATGL.
