NGHC is setting up a mega plant to produce green hydrogen at-scale for global export in the form of green ammonia with a total investment of $8.4 billion. Supported by 23 local, regional, and international banking and financial institutions, the project has now achieved full financial close and construction is moving forward.

A few quarters back, L&T received the nod to establish the renewable energy generation, storage and grid infrastructure, from Air Products, the system-integrating EPC contractor and exclusive off-taker of green ammonia to be produced from the project. 

David R Edmondson, CEO of NEOM Green Hydrogen Company said, "NGHC is excited to be leading the global energy transition and having the right partners is essential in making this happen, so we are thrilled to be working with Larsen and Toubro on our green hydrogen generation, grid infrastructure and storage".
