The company aims to set up 7.5 KPTA (kilo tonne per annum)-distributed green hydrogen plants for industrial consumption in Andhra Pradesh with an investment of Rs 1,500 crore. It has also entered into an agreement with the state government to set up multiple decentralised green hydrogen.

Andhra Pradesh is an industrial hub with a mix of industries like petrochemicals, glass manufacturing, cement, fertilizers, etc. It offers a larger customer base to service and has a good potential for renewable energy generation considering the state's encouraging geography, the company statement said.
