US-based PEM electrolysers maker Ohmium International will partner with integrated energy company Shell India to jointly explore opportunities for green hydrogen applications, both in India and abroad.
The companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that outlines the scope of their partnership, Ohmium said on Wednesday. Under the initiative, the duo will seek to evaluate hydrogen applications, markets, and project opportunities. For this purpose, they intend to launch joint working groups and assess opportunities from the technical, commercial and safety perspectives.
The collaboration aims to support British oil giant Shell Plc’s (LON:SHEL) goal of cutting the absolute emissions of its operations by 50% by 2030 and becoming a net-zero emissions business by 2050.
“We plan to develop integrated hydrogen hubs to serve the industry and heavy-duty transport to be a leading player in this space. This MoU with Ohmium is a step in our journey,” said Nitin Prasad, Chairman, Shell Group of Companies in India. He added that the work with Ohmium will help it make its hydrogen projects more competitive.
