Shell India and Ohmium International have joined forces to explore green hydrogen applications, markets and project opportunities in the South Asian country and globally.
The two companies plan to launch joint working groups to assess opportunities from the technical, commercial and safety perspectives.
The collaboration supports Shell’s ambition to help build a global hydrogen economy by developing the most competitive opportunities in the production, storage, transport and delivery of hydrogen to end customers.
Ohmium’s interlocking modular PEM electrolyers are said to provide a “safer, modular, flexible, easy to install and maintain alternative” to customised electrolysers.
Nitin Prasad, Chairman, Shell Group of Companies in India said: “We have set an ambitious goal of becoming a net zero emissions business by 2050 with a target to reduce absolute emissions by 50% by 2030. Green hydrogen has a critical role in helping the world reach zero emissions. We plan to develop integrated hydrogen hubs to serve the industry and heavy-duty transport to be a leading player in this space.
“This MoU with Ohmium is a step in our journey. We would like to work with Ohmium to make this a productive collaboration which would help us make our hydrogen projects most competitive. We are keen to explore all opportunities to work with all our contract partners to continuously drive competitiveness in our projects.”
