  • Signed an EPC contract and long-term service agreement with Hyderabad-based Medha Servo Drives Pvt. Ltd. for Hydrogen production and Refueling Station at Jind, Haryana, for Indian Railways
  • Project equipment to be supplied from GreenH Electrolysis' newly constructed plant at Jhajjar, Haryana

NEW DELHI, Dec. 12. 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenH Electrolysis ("GreenH"), a joint venture between H2B2 Electrolysis Technologies and GR Promoter Group, today announced that it entered into a contract in October 2023 with Medha Servo Drives Pvt. Ltd. ("Medha") to build a Hydrogen production and refueling station in Jind, Haryana, to supply Hydrogen for India's first Hydrogen train under the prestigious Indian Railways' "Hydrogen for Heritage" initiative.

Indian Railways has awarded a contract to Medha for a pilot project to retrofit Diesel Electric Multiple Unit rake, on the Sonipat-Jind section, from diesel to a hydrogen-powered train, as a first step to achieving India Railways' net zero emissions goal. In turn, Medha has contracted GreenH to provide the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction ("EPC") of a hydrogen production and refueling station for this important and groundbreaking project.

GreenH will provide the necessary equipment from its newly constructed PEM electrolyzer manufacturing plant in Jhajjar District, Haryana. The Hydrogen production and refueling station is expected to deploy a comprehensive system to both produce Hydrogen and refuel the trains on a daily basis. To achieve the first stage, a 1 MW electrolyzer, supplied by GreenH, will operate round the clock with an expected capacity of 420 kg/day of hydrogen. The refueling infrastructure is expected to integrate 3,000 kg hydrogen storage, hydrogen compressors, and two hydrogen dispensers with pre-cooler integration, allowing for quick refueling of the trains, being adapted to their daily routes. The Hydrogen production and refueling station is expected to be a turn-key solution, comprised of all the technical disciplines (process, electrical, instrumentation and control, safety, etc.), and providing full support to the end user through a Long-term Service Agreement for operation and maintenance purposes.

Mr. Dhiman Roy, CEO and Director, GreenH Electrolysis Pvt. Ltd. said, "We are delighted to be a part of this prestigious Indian Railways project that has the potential to revolutionize our country's lifeline and decarbonise the transport sector. We are committed to providing the latest technology via our parent company H2B2 Electrolysis Technologies. We look forward to playing a meaningful role in the achievement of India's green hydrogen plans."

Mr. Kasyap Reddy, Managing Director, Medha Servo Drives Pvt. Ltd. said, "We are excited to be partnering with GreenH Electrolysis Pvt. Ltd. in setting up a hydrogen production and refueling station at Jind for India's first hydrogen-powered train. With GreenH's technical expertise and globally proven green hydrogen technology at a commercial scale, we believe they are the best partner to deliver this critical project."

The Indian Railways plans to operate thirty-five hydrogen trains as part of the "Hydrogen for Heritage" initiative. The first of these hydrogen-fueled trains will run between Jind and Sonipat and will be flagged off next year, marking India's entry into the league of countries that are actively investing in cutting-edge technologies to transform the transport sector.
