Ohmium International, Inc., a green hydrogen company that designs, manufactures, and deploys polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, is collaborating with Spirare Energy, a leading provider of on-site energy generation systems, to generate green hydrogen at the NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance (Netra) campus.
Spirare Energy will manage the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the project while Ohmium will provide the hydrogen electrolyzers to Spirare.
In a press statement, the companies said Ohmium’s interlocking modular PEM electrolyzers provide a safer, modular, flexible, easy to install and maintain alternative to customized electrolyzers. The project will supply up to 52 tons of green hydrogen annually for the power generation and energy storage application.
“Green hydrogen offers India the opportunity to become a global energy leader–and with Spirare and NTPC we’re delivering on that potential. NTPC is pioneering the green hydrogen sector in India and we’re thrilled that they are utilizing our Made in India electrolyzers,” said Arne Ballantine, CEO of Ohmium International. “We look forward to showing how our modular, high-volume, low-cost PEM electrolyzers can scale rapidly and efficiently to reach megawatt to gigawatt applications.”
The Spirare-Ohmium project is part of NTPC’s Netra Green Campus Project. NTPC, the largest power utility in India, set up Netra in 2009.
“Ohmium’s PEM electrolyzers provide us with a reliable, scalable green hydrogen solution that is the best on the market. We’re excited to be moving forward with Ohmium to complete what is among the most important green hydrogen projects in the country,” said Suhas Bhasin, Managing Director of Spirare.
