Hygenco will produce green ammonia from its forthcoming project at the Gopalpur port in Odisha. First Phase of this project will produce 600 TPD which will achieve CoD by 2027. Phase 2a will double this to 1,200 MTPD by early 2028. However, this Project will reach to its full production capacity of 1.1 MTPA of Green Ammonia by 2030.

Currently, Hygenco is the only Indian company with an operational commercial green hydrogen plant. Additionally, the company is currently developing multiple Green Hydrogen plants in India and plans to invest US$2.5 Bn in Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia projects in the next three years.

"Inspired by the age-old philosophy that the world is one family, we are proud to announce a visionary partnership with Ameropa to support their decarbonization goals.

Globally efforts are intensified to reduce carbon emissions and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, green hydrogen and ammonia emerge as promising alternatives to fossil fuels across various sectors, including fertilizers and energy. With India’s target of producing 5 million tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030, the country is poised to become a major exporter of green ammonia.

"Ameropa reckons the undoubtable fast-tracking of green ammonia projects in Odisha state, India. The Swiss trader has decided to support Hygenco’s well-advanced plans whilst nurturing the ambition of a global portfolio of low-carbon ammonia," commented Ameropa’s Head of Ammonia, Beat Ruprecht.
