Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), Larsen and Toubro (L&T), Greenko Group, and Welspun New Energy are planning to establish green hydrogen and green ammonia units at Gujarat’s Deendayal Port Authority (DPA) in Kandla. This project is expected to attract investments of up to USD 12 billion, marking one of the largest investments for a green hydrogen project in India.

The Kandla port will produce 7 MTPA of green ammonia and 1.4 MTPA of green hydrogen. The port authority had received expressions of interest (EoIs) for 14 land parcels of 300 acres each in October last year. Last month, DPA allotted the plots to the four companies. Of this, RIL, one of the top green hydrogen companies in India, has been allotted six plots; L&T, the largest construction company in India, has been allotted five; Greenko Group has bagged two; and Welspun New Energy has been allotted one plot.
