NTPC will establish India’s first public green hydrogen mobility project in Leh within a year after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone on Saturday (30 July).
The prime minister laid the foundation stone of the 735 MW Nokh Solar Project in Rajasthan, Green Hydrogen Mobility Project in Leh and Kawas Green Hydrogen Blending with Natural Gas project in Gujarat.
Since NTPC has already floated a tender for setting up a solar plant and green hydrogen generation unit prior to the Prime Minister laying the foundation stone, the project is expected to commence as soon as possible after the foundation stone has been laid.
The Green Hydrogen Mobility Project at Leh, Ladakh is a pilot project and aims for five Fuel Cell Buses to be run in and around Leh. This pilot project would be the first deployment of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles for public use in India.
The Green Hydrogen Blending Pilot Project at NTPC Kawas Township will be India’s first Green Hydrogen Blending Project helping in reducing the usage of natural gas.
