The MoU will explore opportunities in green hydrogen potential in India and will see the Greenko group and Singapore's Keppel Infrastructure working towards a 250,000 tonne per annum contract to be supplied to Keppel's new 600Mw power plant in Singapore.
"Further, the contract for the export of green ammonia would also expand to cover bunker fuel through the Keppel network in Singapore's network of bunker fuel supplies to ships," said Mahesh Kolli, President and Joint Managing Director of Greenko Group. Likewise, Greenko's wide range of investments include USD 5 billion in the storage of carbon-free green hydrogen energy across India, Kolli added.
Kolli said India would be exporting energy for the first time from 2025. Elaborating, Kolli said Greenko would participate in green hydrogen exports from 2025-26 onwards, estimating global demand of 50 million tonne a year globally, including 15 million tonne replacing bunkers fuels in ships.
The green ammonia will fuel newly-built ships, including a fleet ordered by the international shipping group Maersk. This is the first time we are making lowest cost carbon-free energy which means this energy is of high quality, he stressed.
Last month, Greenko signed a deal to supply 1 million tonne a year of green ammonia to South Korean steel and power producer Posco. The delivery is also expected from 2025-26 onwards. In total, Greenko is planning to produce close to 3 million tonne of green ammonia, which will also cover domestic demand, he said.
Greenko's green ammonia will help reduce India's imports of about 6 million tonne of ammonia and urea, he added. The Greenko-Keppel MoU was virtually witnessed by Petroleum and Natural Gas Minister Hardeep Singh Puri and Singapore's Trade and Industry Minister Gan Kim Yong.
Welcoming the MoU, Puri said, "Over the last few years, India has developed unparalleled strength in renewable paths, which acts as a catalyst in producing green hydrogen at competitive prices. I think the manner in which we have brought down the cost of solar power and I think is something that as appreciation and being applauded, applied throughout the world equally."
