Adani collaborates with Leyland and Ballard to create an electric truck powered by hydrogen in India this year itself.

Adani Enterprises Limited (AEL), the Indian company, announced on Tuesday that it has signed a contract with Ashok Leyland and Ballard Power, a Canadian company, to start a pilot project to create a hydrogen fuel cell electric truck (FCET) for the logistics and transportation of mining operations.

Ballard is going to supply the fuel cell engine for the project led by Adani and Ashok Leyland, the Indian truck manufacturer, is going to supply the project with vehicles and technical support.

Launch

The Adani Group’s flagship company announced in a release that the fuel-cell electric truck would be introduced in India in 2023.

Process

Electrolysis is a process that splits water with electricity and produces hydrogen, which can be used as fuel. The substance is known as green hydrogen if the electrolyzers that are the machinery that accomplishes this, are driven by renewable energy.

Adani Group

The Adani Group which is headed by Asia’s richest man Gautam Adani intends to invest more than $50 billion over the next ten years in green hydrogen and related ecosystems which have a capacity of up to 3 million tonnes of green hydrogen per year, according to Adani Enterprises Limited.

Government’s Initiative

The Indian government recently approved a $2.11 billion incentive program to promote green hydrogen and earlier this month set green hydrogen consumption goals for specific companies.

Major Focus of Indian Companies

Green hydrogen is a major focus for Indian businesses including Reliance Industries, Indian Oil, NTPC, Adani, JSW Energy, ReNew Power, and Acme Solar. They aim to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2070.

Partnership

Adani has also partnered with the French energy business Total Energies as part of a contract to establish a new green hydrogen project in India.
