Solar Energy Corporation Seeks Green Ammonia Producers

(MENAFN- KNN India) New Delhi, Jun 10 (KNN) The Solar energy Corporation of India (SECI) has invited bids for the selection of ammonia producers to supply 5.39 lakh metric tonnes of green ammonia annually.

This move is part of the SIGHT Programme under the National Green Hydrogen Mission (NGHM) initiated by the Ministry of New and renewable Energy (MNRE).

In a recent announcement, SECI issued a Request for Selection (RfS) for green ammonia producers in India through competitive bidding.

The bidding process will be conducted through e-bidding followed by an e-Reverse Auction. The produced green ammonia will be supplied to fertiliser companies across the country.

The SIGHT Programme, a component of the NGHM, aims to incentivise the procurement of green ammonia production.

MNRE has already allocated 4.12 lakh metric tonnes per annum of green hydrogen production capacity and 1.5 GW per annum of electrolyser manufacturing capacity under this program.

Launched in January 2023 with an outlay of Rs. 19,744 crores until FY 2029-30, the National Green Hydrogen Mission seeks to make India self-reliant in clean energy and contribute to the global clean energy transition.

The mission is expected to significantly decarbonise the economy, reduce dependence on fossil fuel imports, and position India as a technology and market leader in green hydrogen.
