Norway-headquartered Hexagon Purus, a leading supplier of zero-emission mobility solutions has received its first orders for Type 4 high-pressure hydrogen cylinders from Reliance Industries.
The hydrogen cylinders will be used as prototypes in pilot projects for power solutions and represent Hexagon Purus' first-ever orders for hydrogen applications in India. Reliance recently announced a $80 billion (Rs 592,080 crore) investment program into clean energy whereby hydrogen will play a pivotal role to drive decarbonisation.
Frank Haberli, SVP Asia, Hexagon Purus said, "We are pleased to receive our first orders for India, and to support Reliance in the beginning of their exciting journey to transform India to a globally leading hydrogen economy.”
By 2030, India aims to have 50 percent of its energy requirements from renewable energy and to reduce total projected carbon emissions by one billion tons compared to 2005 levels. The cylinders are due to be delivered in the first half of 2022.
