India launches tender for 1.5 GW of electrolysis production



Solar Energy Corp. of India (SECI) has floated a tender for setting up 1.5 GW of electrolysis equipment manufacturing capacity in India under the government’s incentive scheme.

SECI has started accepting bids to set up 1.5 GW electrolyzer manufacturing capacity in India under the first round of the government’s Green Hydrogen Transition (SIGHT) programme.

SunVilla says that bidders who manufacture electrolysis equipment can receive government incentives by meeting the criteria specified in the bid document. SECI is the executive agency for the incentive scheme with a total capacity of 1.5 GW.

Manufacturers can bid for the production of electrolysis equipment based on any stack technology or domestically developed stack technology. To receive the incentives, manufacturers must meet performance and local value-added requirements, including specific energy consumption, local value-added percentages, and the guaranteed lifetime of the electrolyzer.

The commissioning of the production facilities must take place within 24 months, and incentive fees are distributed annually for five years.
