The National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC) recently issued a request for bids to develop a pilot project for a green hydrogen-based mobility station in Kargil, Ladakh, to run two hydrogen fuel cell-based buses.
Furthermore, the contractor will be in charge of creating a 500 kW grid-connected ground-mounted solar power project to power the station. The electrolyser technology to be used for the green hydrogen project should be an ion exchange membrane, solid oxide electrolyser cell, proton exchange membrane, or alkaline electrolyser.
Two units with a capacity of 30 Nm3 hour must be installed. The daily aim for green hydrogen generation is 40 kg, with a minimum purity level of 99.97%. After receiving the work order, the project should be finished within a year.
For three years, developers must handle the project’s operation and upkeep. The deadline for proposal submissions is July 19, 2023. According to the procurement requirements, bidders must provide a Rs 4 million earnest money deposit.
The successful bidder must provide a performance bank guarantee of 5% of the project cost. Bids must be submitted by original equipment manufacturers with experience in water electrolysers or electrolyser stacks with a minimum hydrogen production capability of 2 kg per hour.
Bidders with past expertise in the supply, construction, and commissioning of equivalent capacity hydrogen production systems may also submit offers.
