IndianOil plans hydrogen refuelling plant


IndianOil and the Gujarat government have inked a memorandum of understanding that will see India’s first hydrogen dispensing plant built at IndianOil’s Gujarat Refinery as a clean fuel project, according to the firm.

This facility will focus on hydrogen buses and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) that will run between Vadodara and Kevadia/Sabarmati Ashram.

In addition to the dispensing facility, a hydrogen infrastructure will be created in the local area, assisting in the acceleration of hydrogen development and transportation initiatives.

This is in line with the India H2 Alliance’s six-point strategy, which involves the creation of ten hydrogen valleys across the country to speed up hydrogen adoption.

Finally, India should establish a Bharat hydrogen industrial group to use hydrogen to aid decarbonization efforts in the steel, refinery, fertilizer, and cement industries, as well as a separate Bharat hydrogen heavy-duty freight transport group.

This would be focused on hydrogen commercialization in trains, trucking, and shipping, taking into account the various hydrogen infrastructure requirements in each of these industries.
