Green Hydrogen boost: BHEL ties up with BARC for electrolyser system to produce hydrogen energy

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) has signed an agreement with the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) for a 50 kW alkaline electrolyser system to produce hydrogen, the company announced in a filing.

“BHEL has entered into a Technology Transfer Agreement (TTA) with BARC for a 50 kW alkaline electrolyser system for hydrogen production,” stated BHEL.

The hydrogen production technology, developed indigenously by BHEL, features a high local material content. Through this collaboration with BARC, BHEL aims to scale up Indigenous Alkaline Electrolyser Technology and commercialize it for use in sectors such as refineries, fertilizers, steel, and transportation.

The agreement was signed in the presence of Jai Prakash Srivastava, Director (Engineering, Research & Development), BHEL, K. Ravishankar, Executive Director (Corporate Technology Management and Corp R&D), BHEL, and Dr. S. Adhikari, Associate Director (Knowledge Management Group), BARC.

This initiative will further BHEL’s contributions to the ‘National Green Hydrogen Mission’ and ‘Aatma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan.’

By leveraging indigenous technology, BHEL aims to significantly contribute to the development of sustainable hydrogen production methods, supporting India’s transition towards cleaner energy sources.

The collaboration between BHEL and BARC is a crucial step in advancing hydrogen technology and promoting a greener future for India.

Previously, BHEL was honored by POWERGRID at the CEO Meet 2024 for its remarkable achievement in commissioning three critical substations under the Neemuch REZ TBCB project ahead of schedule, despite initial challenges.

These projects, aimed at evacuating renewable energy generated by RUMS (Rewa Ultra Mega Solar) under the Neemuch Renewable Energy Zone (REZ), included three substations: 400/220 kV Neemuch (New), an extension of 400 kV Chittorgarh, and an extension of 400 kV Mandsaur.
